Andrew Greeley dies Wednesday night

 |  NCR Today

Fr. Andrew Greeley, an eminent sociologist of religion, probably the best-selling priest/novelist of all time, and the Catholic church's most prominent in-house critic, died late Wednesday night in Chicago. He was 85.

John L. Allen Jr. remembers the man and his legend in this appreciation. He also wrote a profound profile on Greeley in 1999, a piece Allen has said is one of his favorites.
