-The Midwest Book Review
"Perfect for pocket or pocketbook, the booklet once again allows users to find a God-centered path as we wait for the yearly commemoration of the greatest gift of all: eternal life with one who loves us. "
"Lent should also be about changing our awareness of our entire selves and the way we experience the world around us. It is a time of deliberate reflection on our relationships with each other and with God. Fasting from what we do not need, or in solidarity with the poor, or to focus our prayer is a worthy practice. One title that seeks to guide us in these practices is Not by Bread Alone. "
