Reviews - What do customers think about Sacred Moments, Holy Days: Stories of Life, Service and Grace?
Wonderful little stories Oct 22, 2001
Here's the disclaimer: My father is the author.
So I'll keep this brief -- folks who are interested in the facts of hard living in an era of urban decay will enjoy this book and find it quite informative -- drifters, homeless men and women, mentally disabled people about to get evicted... they all get an honest and fair hearing in this book. If you're interested in theology and religion, he provides much to think about. But there's no dogma in these pages. I would honestly reccomend this even if I weren't related to the author but I also honestly wouldn't have picked it up on my own. I guess I'm doubly lucky to be his son.
