Not having studied the sociology of the seminary I was unaware, and probably shouldn't have been, of some of this. I am and have been aware that a central theme of most of Dr. Greeley's novels is the regenerative?/comeback/transcendant power of the church to overcome the yukkiness of its selection system. Kind of neat.
