"I love this book. The author is a bishop after the model of the Church Fathers. He knows how to teach without ever letting on that he’s teaching. He knows how to preach without ever getting preachy. He tells real-life stories - sometimes comic, sometimes bittersweet - that take us to the depths and heights of Christian faith. Give this book to the people you love best." - Mike Aquilina, author, The Fathers of the Church
"What a cause for rejoicing! This collection of engaging reflections provides a bracingly orthodox guide for all those who wish to live the truth of the Gospel. Writing in a conversational style that is lively and vigorous, Bishop Thomas Tobin provides theological depth, strengthened by the wisdom of his pastoral praxis and experience." - Sister J. Sheila Galligan, I.H.M., Theology Department, Immaculata College
"When bishops are ordained, they receive many special graces, but the grace of graceful writing is not generally one of them. An exception is Bishop Thomas J. Tobin. His collected columns are personal and attractive - in them you clearly see him and the faith which is so much a part of him. His explanations of Catholic beliefs are seasoned with a gentle self-deprecation that is endearing. And his prescriptions are so sensible that he could have had a career as an advice columnist." - Karl Keating, founder, Catholic Answers.
