“It’s a real soul art to be engaged in fever pitch in social action and to be a contemplative, too. In these pages, John Dear, the activist, brings us to the still, dark places where he wrestles demons and waits to be touched by God. We wait with him and are touched, too, by the silence and a quickened desire to live simpler, more generous, more engaged lives.”

--Sister Helen Prejean
