Cathleen Falsani is the religion columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times, where, since 2000, she has covered her diverse “God beat” from locations as far afield as Vatican City, Vedic City, Ireland, Germany, the Caribbean, the West Wing, the Playboy Mansion, and the dugout at Wrigley Field. Her first book, The God Factor: Inside the Spiritual Lives of Public People, was released to critical acclaim and The Christian Science Monitor named it one of the best non-fiction books of 2006. Sin Boldly: A Field Guide for Grace was released in fall 2008 and The Dude Abides: The Gospel According to the Coen Brothers is forthcoming (April 2009). A Connecticut native, Falsani is a graduate of Wheaton College. She holds a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University as well as a master’s degree in theological studies from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. Falsani lives in the Chicago area with her husband and fellow journalist, Maurice Possley.
