NYC fire chaplain focus of biography

The Rev. Mychal Judge, the New York City Fire Department chaplain killed in the Sept. 11 attacks, will be the subject of a biography coming out next fall from the Paulist Press, a nonprofit religious publisher.

“Father Mychal Judge: An Authentic American Hero” is being written by BBC religion reporter Michael Ford, whose work the 68-year-old chaplain admired.

“I believe this priest’s remarkable story will bring hope to many, inspiring them to care compassionately for others, especially those on the margins,” Ford said in a statement Tuesday. He is the author of “Wounded Prophet,” a biography of the spiritual writer Henri Nouwen that Judge reportedly read and to which he related deeply.
