Of Demons and Angels is a book that takes the reader into a unique life experience of an ex-catholic priest. This is a story of faith that gives an insight into the peculiar, complex, and most intriguing aspects of priesthood like celibacy and the difference between a real Christian and a pseudo one. By adopting an informal writing and a deeply personal tone, the author chooses not to hide but to treat such thorny issues with humility, honesty, lived experience, faith, and a deep sense of soul searching both as a Catholic Christian and as a former Catholic priest.
