Overview

In <i>Cloud of Witnesses</i>, Fr. George Rutler offers a personal account of the many remarkable people he has encountered throughout his life. From Robert Frost, to Mother Teresa to the many lesser known people, Fr. Rutler lets you in on the many graces that he has received through his own friendships. Told with personal vignettes in his signature style, Fr. Rutler offers not only an inside glimpse into his remarkable circle of friends, but also a deeper understanding and appreciation for the richness of the priestly ministry. <i>“While Father George might not know everyone worth knowing, he does introduce us to a bewildering range of characters… We find no malice in these portraits, but he is honest, perhaps a little tougher on his fellow clerics, as he writes loyally of the humanity of his friends. I know a few of the characters brought to life in these sketches and can vouch for their accuracy. I therefore feel confidence in recommending also the larger number of personalities I did not know.”</i> ~ From the foreword by George Cardinal Pell of Sydney. This is an unusual book, written by an author with unusual insights, a wide range of knowledge, and an elegant style.

Editorial Reviews

Mike Potemra
Regular NRO readers are familiar with the work of Father George Rutler, the Anglican-turned-Roman Catholic polymath who is rector of the Church of Our Saviour in Manhattan. Father Rutler has, to understate significantly, a distinctive personality, and what makes his new book — Cloud of Witnesses: Dead People I Knew When They Were Alive — such a joy to read is his own appreciation for the distinctiveness of the characters with which God has peopled his life, and ours.
