When this book was first published in 1970 as The Christian Under Pressure, it was a Book Club selection of the Spiritual Book Associates. America magazine's Father C.J. McNaspy, S.J., said of it: "It has been a long time since any book has stirred more empathetic vibrations, gripped me more viscerally, left me so simply delighted and healthier. Not, perhaps, since C.S. Lewis burst upon us back in the 40's has anything like this appearedso fresh, so wise, so understanding."
