"In his moving account of Flight 1549, Fred Berretta misses no opportunity to point out the miraculous events of that fateful day. But one more must be mentioned: the amazing fact that a person like Berretta, a trained pilot and man of faith, was aboard the plane and can share with us the wisdom of his singular experience, first in a series of live interviews, and now with the added benefit of time and reflection. Berretta writes that Flight 1549 was a life tutorial for him, and his book "Flight of Faith" can be a life tutorial for us." --Thomas N. Peters, AmericanPapist.com
"I could not put this book down until I read the very last word. Fred Berretta chronicles a riveting 3-minute drop from 3,000 feet over Manhattan into the icy waters of the Hudson River, intertwined with his personal journey of faith. I feel like the 156th soul who survived that day to proclaim God's mercy. How I related to his realization, " I had always believed in miracles, but somehow I never thought they could happen to me." Flight of Faith has made a believer of me in the power and promises of devotional prayer." --Brian Patrick, Host, EWTN Son Rise Morning Show
