"From the book's opening sentence...and sensible reader will be caught in Godric's grip...Godric glimmers brightly." -- Peter S. Prescott, Newsweek
"Godric is a memorable book...a marvelous gem of a book...destined to become a classic of its kind." -- Michael Heskett, Houston Chronicle
"In the extraordinary figure of Godric, both stubborn outsider and true child of God, both worldly and unworldly, Frederick Buechner has found an ideal means of exploring the nature of spirituality. Godric is a living battleground where God fights it out with the world, the Flesh, and the Devil." -- London Times Literary Supplement
"Wityh a poet's sensibly and a high reverent fancy, Frederick Buechner paints a memorable portrait." -- Edmund Fuller, The Wall Street Journal

Mike5 Stars Out Of 5January 4, 2002MikeThis book is a must read for serious Christians who like finely woven prose, and are not afraid of devastatingly honest portrayals of people's lives. Godric zigzags between being a saint and a sinner. He does each to extremes. The only thing more shocking than Godric's excesses is God's unyielding acceptance and grace for the sinner/saint.
