“Thank you for giving me this opportunity to write about a book which I believe is a gift to the world. I alsoleftmy religion with no bitterness, as Father Paul seems to have done. I can relate to his story–I believe him. Instead of being judgmental–he is simply stating the facts. I am confident this will come across to Catholics and non- Catholics alike.” ~ Mary Myers
