     Donald Cozzens is Writer in Residence and Adjunct Professor of Theology at John Carroll University in Ohio. He spent the 2001-2002 academic year as a scholar at the Institute for Ecumenical and Cultural Research at St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota, where he studied the dynamics of institutional denial. His research led to his award-winning book, Sacred Silence: Denial and the Crisis in the Church (Liturgical Press, 2002).

     For more than a decade, Cozzens has been writing and speaking about the crisis facing the church and the priesthood. Since January of 2002 when the clergy sexual abuse scandal received wide media attention, he has appeared on “Meet the Press” with Tim Russert, Terry Gross’ “Fresh Air,” NPR’s “All Things Considered,” and BBC radio and television.

     His experience as vicar for clergy and as president-rector of Cleveland’s Saint Mary Seminary led to his best-selling and award winning book, The Changing Face of the Priesthood (Liturgical Press, 2000) which has been translated into Portuguese, Italian, German, Spanish, French, Dutch, and Czech editions. His latest books are Faith That Dares to Speak (Liturgical Press, 2004) and the award-winning Freeing Celibacy (Liturgical Press, 2006).

     A priest of the Diocese of Cleveland, Cozzens has served as spiritual director, counselor, and retreat master for monks, nuns, priests, and bishops.
