Editorial Reviews

"The realness of this text is its most distinctive feature. In it we read about the struggles, the successes, the challenges, the learning experiences, the joys, and the spiritual uplift and rejuvenation of the authors. The articles are not too long, either, which is a joy to students, butthey provide enough material to get students thinking critically about issues." --Patreece Boone, St. Louis University
