Editorial Reviews

Review

“A hymn to the mystery of disobedience…What makes you eager to push this book into the hands of the next person you meet are the small, still moments, epics captured in miniature.... Essential.” ―The New York Times

“Evocative...A valentine to the human spirit.” ―The Wall Street Journal

“On stage and in the pulpit, moral dilemmas of this kind tend to have a black-and-white clarity. Working from life, Mr. Press brings out the grays….Rich in personal, circumstantial details that analytical thinkers in search of clear principles may overlook.” ―The Economist

“Press examines his subjects carefully....In some ways Beautiful Souls is a thoughtful gesture of support. That might sound like a small thing, but it's not. Compassion never is.” ―The New York Times Book Review

“Provides rich, provocative narratives of moral choice…Press makes us wonder if we would have the strength to act against the crowd, and in so doing spread a bit of light in our own dark times.” ―The Washington Post

“Fantastic…A brilliant meditation on [the] very difficult decisions of conscience that people have to make…I just want to urge everybody, please read this book.” ―The Nation
