Endorsements

If there is such a thing as the gift of writing, it is my opinion that Ken Gire has it. Creative, colorful, lucid and easy to read, he has developed a firm grip on this elusive craft, much of which cannot be taught. In athletic terms, the man's a natural.
-Charles R. Swindoll

I'm just a writer; Ken Gire is a real writer.
—Max Lucado

Ken Gire is a man who walks with God. He listens to his life and to the voice of God through all his experiences. As a result, Ken's gift of writing has had a profound impact on me and many others at our church. We reserve a special place on our bookshelves for the writings of Ken Gire, returning there often to be inspired by his powerful and honest use of story and image. When Ken has come to speak, his words have refreshed our souls, always providing us with a new way to look at the human condition and our quest to connect more deeply to God.
-Nancy Beach

Ken Gire carves out words the way an artist carves a masterpiece.
—John Trent

I eagerly await any book from the pen of Ken Gire. To me he has written some of the finest devotional thoughts and books in the past decade. His writing speaks to the heart, soul and mind.
-H. Norman Wright

Editorial Reviews

"I eagerly await any book from the pen of Ken Gire. To me he has written some of the finest devotional thoughts and books in the past decade. His writing speaks to the heart, soul and mind."
"Gire is a wordsmith, a superb story teller, yet always with Christ at the centre. This is a book I will use next Holy Week. A prayer concludes each meditation, as well as a list of questions for reflection/conversation, so it could easily be used as a Lenten study. Finally, Gire's book makes me think about faith, of 'the unseen': if Gire could write a gem of a book without having seeing the moving Pieta, what does that say about our faith in whom we cannot see?"
". . . this book can be commended as a creative and largely successful foray into one of the greatest divine mysteries in its implications for us all."
