Letdown Jan 20, 1999
I must admit to finding this book a bit of a letdown. Fr. Oliva's sincerity is certainly not at fault here. His passion for the subject matter is quite admirable and reassuring, and he does a fine job of relating it to his own life and journey.The problem I had with the book is quite simple. Fr. Oliva seems to work on the assumption that every man is a husband and a father. Virtually all of the accounts he gives from various men has them discussing their wives and their children, and I can't recall a single instance in the book in which the lives of single men are affirmed and celebrated, even though our lives too could greatly benefit from books on men's spirituality.
