AWSOME Sep 22, 1999
This book will make you think
Poignant and Humorous! Mar 26, 1998
Reading "Life Injections" is like reading a book of short stories each with its small cast of characters facing life's dilemmas which somehow don't seem as complicated under the glow of Fr. Zajac's insight. "Life Injections" is a collage of fables a modern Aesop might write revealing that though life is indeed difficult, it is not necessarily complicated. If Paul were writing his epistles in 1996 instead of 0056 he would be hard pressed to convey more insight than flows from Fr Zajac's entrancing "stories" of gentle truths that bring simple answers to our human condition. -- Thomas T. Frantz, Chair, Department of Counseling and Educational Psychology, SUNY at Buffalo
Lots of very practical food for thought Mar 12, 1998
An excellent resource for reflection on the meaning of life as we confront it in the decisions of everyday life. A resource for preachers and for the "person in the pew," especially good for hospital and health care situations. Warning: it may bring tears to the eyes, both for humor, and for touching the heartstrings in the difficult moments of life. --Rev. Allen Bryan, Hospice Chaplain
Truly Food for Thought! Mar 12, 1998
George Burns once said "a sermon should have a good beginning , a good ending - and hopefully they are close together." We can be grateful Fr. Zajac does not subscribe to this philosophy! Not only do his beginnings and endings claim our attention - so, too, is most of what is in between truly food for the journey. The sermons he has shared with us reveal the soul of a man who is not only well read but also well lived in the joys, sorrows and foibles of the human predicament. There is not a sermon in this collection where he does not tie his thoughts together with actual experience. To use one of his own illustrations: Fr. Zajac has closed the gap between his head and his heart and given us a group of sermons that ring true. In reading many of them I felt he was holding a mirror up to my face; I strongly suspect this is one of the greatest gifts he has to share. The Rev. Cynthia Brownson Sweigert, Rector, The Church of the Redeemer, Pittsburgh, Pa.
Charming and Engaging! Mar 4, 1998
A little spark can light a mighty flame. There is not a sermon here of Father Zajac's that does not abound in sparks that will turn his readers to caring afresh for our muddled, hope-filled family, and connecting Scripture to our human experience. Rev. Ross Mackenzie, Director of Department of Religion, Chautauqua Institution
