Reviews

Roderick Strange invites us to join him in the adventure of the liturgical year. He faces the challenges to belief with an engaging honesty and a wisdom enriched by his love of the gospel, his knowledge of the human heart and his gift of friendship.
Timothy Radcliffe, OP
The author shows a respectful attentiveness to the text of the Scriptures, and to the Catholic tradition; Strange faces, with immense honesty, all the difficulties and problems that people have with Catholic Christianity. This may be his best book yet
Nicholas King, SJ
Roderick Strange brings together, in an elegant and engaging way, the experiences and treasures of a lifetime. With warmth and sensitivity, he offers to our contemporaries an exploration of Christian faith and hope which brings light to our troubled world. This is a delightful and rewarding book: an eloquent Catholic apologia.
Cardinal Vincent Nichols
There is a rare clarity to Roderick Strange's thought about his faith, and an ever rarer clarity in the everyday language he uses to convey it. Together in Journey into Light they carry his readers through the Church's year and through the ups and downs of their lives with insight, wisdom and above all hope
