With his formidable intellect Frederick Borsch has a remarkable knack for making things that are abstruse and difficult seem suddenly so comprehensible. Perhaps it is because he has such a profound reverence for persons. -- Archbishop Emeritus Desmond M. Tutu This is a brilliant book. I don't agree with all of it, but I know one thing as a certainty: In these pages a fully mature Christian engages his faith with wisdom, candor, and the kind of sanguine courage only prayerful living gives a man. Read it. You'll be the richer for having done so. -- Phyllis Tickle, compiler The Divine Hours What has God got to do with it? Answering a question like that requires knowing something about 'it' as well as about God. Few ever meet that difficult double criterion with greater grace than Frederick Borsch does here. -- Jack Miles, author of God: A Biography
