This isn't just one more book about the September 11 tragedy. Here are stories of one human being descending into the hell of Ground Zero to offer his help - but with this difference: Jim Martin is like God's bloodhound, sniffing out grace, redemption, and consolation wherever he can find it. Up against such impenetrable darkness we long for a glimmer of light - and Jim's tiny lantern of faith gives us glints of that light. (Sister Helen Prejean, C.S.J)
A vivid and inspiring account of how God's loving presence could be experienced amid the smoldering ruins of the Twin Towers. Father Martin's unusual combination of gifts as priest and journalist enables him to convey, in simple lapidary prose, both the grief of those who suffered and the selfless devotion of the rescue workers. (Cardinal Avery Dulles S.J., Lawrence J. McGinley Professor of Religion and Society, Fordham University)
