Such a voice Dec 31, 2006
Nothing I have ever read of Bill Coffin's has been less than excellent and this book is that way too. His is an enduring voice - a guiding voice - and a voice that speaks for all of us that get lost sometimes in the wars and worries of the world. Coffin know the Truth, and was given the gift of helping us all who are seeking.
