From the back cover of the book:
Father Dave is the only Australian in Holy Orders who has ever had to box professionally in order to raise the funds to keep his ministry going. He is Sydney’s ‘Fighting Father’, who combines his work as a Parish Priest with a ministry to street kids, heroin addicts and other undesirables from the underside of Australian society.
Sex, the Ring, and the Eucharist is a series of snapshots from Father Dave’s life. The book, lie it’s author, is hard-hitting and straight talking. This is no-nonsense Christianity – a spirituality of the street.
“What comes through this book is David’s priestliness – the fact that he intercedes for and defends the people of his parish as their shepherd. David’s humanity is totally transparent in this book, and that is refreshing in the often make-believe world of the church.”
Rev. Dr Mark Harding (Dean of the Australian College of Theology)
“I managed to read your book mate, and to be quite frank I like it! Not a bad read at all! I think you might be onto something mate”
Paul ‘the Pitbull’ Grima (former Australian welterweight Kickboxing Champion)
