Reviews - What do our customers think?
Simply Provocative  Apr 18, 2008
Not a reader of biographies, I was hesitant to purchase the book but have found it to be a source of reflection in its simplicity and complexity. If Day becomes a saint, then there is hope for all of us because she was so much like us. So human and yet capable of so much divine. It's a wonderful read for rainy days and haunting souls.
 
Dorothy Day in her own words  Oct 3, 2001
Dorothy Day's life and writings challenge Christians to remember and serve the least among us. This selection of writings highlights a broad range of social, political and religious topics. In her time, Ms. Day's activism brought about much criticism and opposition. Today many remember her as America's Mother Teresa. Her purpose was to keep the Gospel alive through the challenge of service. Her voice continues to shine in the pages of this excellent collection. If you are interested in a call to social justice Dorothy Day's writings will be a source of continued inspiration.
 
Great!  Jul 10, 2001
This was the first book by Dorothy Day that I ever read and now I have just finished it for the second time. It's fabulous! Informative and inspirational. I found my faith strengthened by reading this book. I highly recommend it for all.
 
A call to radical Christianity  Apr 18, 2001
A collection of Day's writing, it's a fascinating read, and one would hope a call to conversion for those who fail to see Christ in all around them, especially in the poor. Remember, we are told not to judge and to give freely to all who ask. Think about that the next time you're approached by a panhandler.
