Review:

Excellent, truly excellent! -M. Scott Peck

"The minister of a famous Unitarian church, himself the son of a notable patriot and lawmaker, demonstrates, with frequent and grateful reference to Scripture, spiritual strength based on experience and reason, and especially in times of sorrow." -Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Forrest Church takes on the toughest issues-love, death, guilt, and forgiveness-and comes up with practical, usable advice." -Dan Wakefield, author of Creating from the Spirit
