"In his ability to relate contemplation to action directed towards the needy and by his insistence on the need for such action to be an expression of an inner turning towards God, Ken Leech has taken the tradition of Catholic spiritual writing one stage further, posing often neglected questions about the spiritual dimensions of radical action." --Alasdair MacIntyre, University of Notre Dame<br /><br />"Knowing how to be an alternative for the world without becoming self-righteous is no easy task. This is why we need the wisdom of a life by the name of Leech." --Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University<br /><br />"The plain truth is that no-one else writes with such authority about the pastoral and prophetic task in our church at the moment." --Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

Not one to romanticize the "church" (especially in her denominational manifestations!) yet always respectful and observant of the traditions (ancient and modern!) Ken's hard-won perspectives of faith in the streets (more importantly than in the pews) makes for inspiring (and inspired) reading and reflection.
As Dorothy Day was the Catholic Worker, so Ken Leech is the Anglican Worker! Without reservation, he represents the very best of what Anglican Christians have to offer today!
