Hope Sings, So Beautiful dares to interrupt readers, inviting them to reflect more deeply still on systemic racism's dehumanization of us all. Pramuk writes with eloquence, integrity, and urgency. -- Kimberly Vrudny, University of St. Thomas
Kiss doubt and small living goodbye and prepare to take a tremulous step across the color line. Hope Sings gracefully shepherds the reader beyond isolated, self-centered prisons into inspiring worlds of scholarship, story, and song. Pramuk does not present a simplistic diagnosis of race problems, but an alternate horizon painful, partial, mysterious, but nonetheless resonant with music. To those who help us see, we owe the deepest reverence; this author is one. --Kathy Coffey, Author of The Best of Being Catholic
Pramuk creatively interweaves music, scholarship, art, the natural world, theology, personal experience, spiritual writings, and much more to examine discipleship in a racist and fractured world. But above all he unveils the everyday mystery of divine love that beckons us to new life and a new way forward. --Timothy Matovina, University of Notre Dame, Author of Latino Catholicism: Transformation in America's Largest Church

Pramuk's own beautiful prose gives his thoughtful reflections a melody which carries one quickly to the book's end and leaves one whistling the tune after it's over.
It's theology about the people of God and how we all can raise the bar of racial tolerance and even love each other as Jesus has commanded. I recommend it to book clubs as it is a natural catalyst for fruitful discussion. I found it a passionate and engaging read!
