A prolific writer, Buechner's books have been translated into twenty-seven languages.

"Frederick Buechner brings the reader to his knees, sometimes in laughter, sometimes in an astonishment very close to prayer, and at the best of times in a combination of both." * - The New York Times Book Review *
"Frederick Buechner has inspired me not only with his writing, but with his generosity of spirit. I'm incredibly thankful." * - Rachel Held Evans *
"Frederick Buechner is a beacon. When we can't remember what is true and what it all means, he's the person we turn to." * - Anne Lamott *
"He isn't trying to persuade - he's trying to understand what he himself believes and thinks. And that honesty is more persuasive than the most polished argument." * - John Ortberg *
"Frederick Buechner doesn't just show us how to write; he shows us how to live." * - Philip Yancey *
"Frederick Buechner is not just a wordsmith but an image-smith - he's the bridge between Gutenberg and Google." * - Len Sweet *
"To each new generation, his work is a revelation." * - The Lutheran *
"Frederick Buechner gives new life to Christian truth." * - Katelyn Beaty *
"With profound intelligence, Buechner's novel does what the finest, most appealing literature does: it displays and illuminates the seemingly unrelated mysteries of human character and ultimate ideas... One of our finest writers." * - Annie Dillard, Boston Globe *
"If Frederick Buechner subordinated his nature and chose to write on naughts and nothings, he would still exalt his readers. When he is in representative harmony and writes of the accessibility of God to humanity and of humanity's agreement with its potential divinity, we, the readers, are lifted up, buoyed up, and promised wholeness." * - Maya Angelou *
"You don't have to be in the habit of going to church to listen to such a literary minister; you don't have to be a believer to be moved by Mr. Buechner's faith." * - John Irving *
"He raises the bar not only for Christian writers, but for all of literature." * - Mako Fujimura *
