The Philadelphia Report is a highly polished audio presentation of the Philadelphia Investigating Grand Jury report on Catholic clergy sexual abuse of minors in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The 2005 report documents the results of a four-year Grand Jury investigation led by Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham. Of all the Grand Jury Reports into U.S. dioceses, this is the model for investigation of the pattern and practice of Catholic clergy abuse and the cover-up perpetrated by authorities.
A courageous team of Deputy District Attorneys including Charles Gallagher and William Spade navigated their way through the files and allegations against 62 Philadelphia priests—less than half the number of implicated clergy in the church files. The audiobook Foreword is provided by Marci A. Hamilton, professor of law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, and coauthor of the report.
The audiobook is read by an eclectic and talented consortium of voice professionals motivated by a common commitment to truth, no matter how painful.
