Format: Paperback
This is a really lovely, very accessible exposition of what St. Peter's life teaches us about how we are called to follow Christ. Written by Archbishop Timothy Dolan, the new Archbishop of New York City, the book is centered around the words that Dolan has taken on as his episcopal motto (To Whom Shall We Go?), which is from the Gospel of John 6:67-68.

Archbishop Dolan, who we were privileged to have lead our diocese of Milwaukee for the past six years or so, is a plain-speaking, joyful, humble man who speaks to ordinary people in a very helpful way. This book is a lovely example of his clear and helpful thinking.

Each chapter begins with a story of St. Peter's life from which Dolan pulls out very helpful life lessons. These are generously sprinkled with good humor, touching stories from his own experiences and memorable tidbits that seem so very simple and do-able. And that's an important part of passing along to the Faith to others (especially to our children) to help them see that living a good life *is* possible!

The reality the good Archbishop presents here is very realistic, but also very hopeful. Consider his reflection on the financial troubles that have befallen the Church in the wake of the sex abuse scandals:

"Maybe it's not such a bad thing that, because of all the upheaval, all the scandals, all the shortages of priests, all the lawsuits, and everything else that's gone on the last forty tumultuous years, we don't have silver and gold anymore. We can barely pay our bills. But what we've got, we're clinging to: the pearl of great price, the most priceless treasure of all, Jesus Christ.

I've never read anything by Archbishop Dolan before, but after this I will be reading more. To Whom Shall We Go is a cogent series of reflections based on St. Peter's words & actions in the Gospel, Acts, and tradition. We can relate to St. Peter's failures, but what sets him apart from someone like Judas, is that he returns to the Lord, and he knows that the Lord's mercy exceeds his sinfulness. Dolan's book gives practical guidance on returning to the Lord always, including on how to change our lives to reflect discipleship.

I have read other books authored by Archbishop Dolan, and without fail he doesn't disappoint. I have used this book in conjunction with my prayer life in seminary formation. The book, while short and easy to read, is packed with great insights into the life of St. Peter based on scriptural references to his encounter wih Jesus and his journey in discipleship. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who desires to increase their devotion to St. Peter as a model for discipleship and following Jesus more closely as our Savior. In terms of receiving the book. I commend the company that shipped it out. It was sent in a timely manner and packaged very well. I received the book in great condition just as if I had picked up the book myself from a book store. Great customer service and care for the consumer in terms of satisfying all expectations.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Arch Bishop Dolan's book is a winner. While the prose is not as exciting in specifics the overall message is powerful when contemplated in totality. Using the journey of Saint Peter who personifies us all in our journey to acceptance of the most infinite mercy of God Arch Bishop Dolan uses the example of the First of the Apostles to show not only his human frailty put on display for all of us to witness but also realize we for the most part cannot make such egregious mistakes yet be brought into total love by our Lord and Savior. Contrasting Judas who could not allow himself to be saved through the acceptance of God's mercy this book has become a centerpiece of the thought behind my spiritual direction to those seeking God's forgiveness. Divided into several small chapters the overall message put into an easy to ready book truly hits home to those who cannot comprehend God's endless love and care for us. For a deeper more quick hitting series of lessons on Saint Peter try Walking on Water with Saint Peter: Reflections to Strengthen Your Faith by Giuseppe Agostino.

Archbishop Timothy Dolan just became the Archbishop of New York so I was curious about his writings. This is an excellent book! He writes as if he is sitting down with you and having a conversation. I highly recommend this book to all who want to enhance their spirituality.

Format: Paperback
Archbishop Dolan has a wonderful gift for writing books that are very accesible, practical, and enjoyable. He presents material in a fashion that is clear and understandable without being "dumbed down." He is a great storyteller and knows how to use his stories to clarify what can be difficult concepts. In this book, he shows us how the life and words of St. Paul can give us guidance in our own quest for holiness. He shows us how God can use our strengths as well as our weaknesses to draw us closer to Himself. It is an excellent book to use for combined reading and meditation. Athough written from a Catholic viewpoint, I believe that Christians of all denominations would enjoy this book. After reading this book and Called to Be Holy, I cannot wait to start another of the archbishop's books.
