Reviews

The range of these essays portrays a man who understands that a full life includes a spiritual life. He is a man who understands the meaning of family, of community, and of our eternal destiny. But he is also a writer who understands the power of a revelation to be found in a single moment, a moment we may all have experienced but most likely have never thought of again. -Robert A. Parker, "Ruminate Magazine"" "The range of these essays portrays a man who understands that a full life includes a spiritual life.
