""Eugene Neville is] one of Boston's great pastors: a pioneer in applying technology to learning, a ministering servant beloved by his people, and a treasured colleague deeply respected by all of us privileged to have ministered with him. This insightful record of his dedication to serving God in inner city ministry, despite racial prejudice and the ravages of glaucoma, will inspire all who read it. This is a record of real ministry in action."" --William David Spencer, author, Distinguished Adjunct Professor of Theology and Arts, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Boston Center for Urban Ministerial Education ""We don't often get an inside look at the personal lives and struggles of pastors and Christian leaders. Neville's humility and vulnerability--as a very successful African-American pastor--provides an intriguing memoir; a ghetto coming-of-age story, a painful narrative of high achievement through barriers of systemic racism, and of survival through attacks from his church family. Even with the threat of blindness, it is a story of hope through suffering, of light in darkness."" --Dean Borgman, Professor of Youth and Family Ministries and of Social Justice, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary ""Simply put, this a deliciously engaging book. Neville carefully weaves a wonderfully rich and well-crafted narrative. His life story helps broaden, deepen, and strengthen our knowledge and understanding of those suffering with glaucoma. He] lifts you from despair and darkness into a glorious and fulfilled life of hope, courage and grace. The Corridors of Strange Darkness is ultimately an uplifting story."" --Dr. Leland O.
