Classic reflections on gospel wisdom from a modern martyr show the ongoing relevance of the gospel in an age of idolatrous power and capricious violence.

“Disturbing reminders...that pious formulas and clichés are not enough to combat evil.”—Xavier Rynne, The New Yorker

“What is most characteristic about these writings...is their absolute honesty and the absolute sincerity of their passion for man....Some of the most powerful spiritual writing of recent times.”—Walter Arnold, Commonwealth

“A searching commentary....These meditations of a priest ought to become the foci of those of every layman.”—Eldon Talley, Cross Currents

“Must rank as one of the great human and spiritual documents of our time.”—The Boston Pilot
