"Lapsed Agnostic" tells the story of one man's journey from belief to un-belief and back again. In the style of his bestseller "Jiving at the Crossroads", John Waters explores his own spiritual and religious adventure and observes how this has been echoed in contemporary society. John Waters was born in the west of Ireland into a small town community steeped in Catholic tradition. As a young man disillusioned by Irish society and the Church he abandoned the idea of becoming a priest. Instead he took to the rock and roll life as a kind of surrogate vocation, moving into music journalism and eventually finding his way to Dublin.In 1991 he published "Jiving at the Crossroads" and a second book, "Race of Angels: Ireland and the Genesis of U2", followed in 1996. He has become an outspoken campaigner for fathers rights in Ireland. This is just part of the story recounted in this remarkable book. But it is about so much more and, like its author, is sure to cause enormous interest and controversy.

"The author presents with courage, honesty and, perhaps, quite an amount of pain; issues that maybe modern society in Ireland is loath to confront...He encourages leaders and especially Church leaders to be more honest and courageous in proclaiming Christian teaching and values. Lapsed Agnostic makes compulsive reading; it will be particularly challenging to Mr Waters' own contemporaries who may face the same questions that he did."
