    A book to be savored and prayed over.

    - St. Anthony Messenger

    Cloud of Witnesses lends itself to being read in snatches, almost like a devotional text. The lives it presents may be among the most devoted of our time.

    - Fellowship

    Reads like a modern day Acts of the Apostles, telling the story of the Christian struggle to witness for peace in a world gone mad on war and injustice.

    - John Dear, SJ
