What People are Saying About This

Avery Cardinal Dulles S.J.

A vivid and inspiring account of how God's loving presence could be experienced amid the smoldering ruins of the Twin Towers. Father Martin's unusual combination of gifts as priest and journalist enables him to convey, in simple lapidary prose, both the grief of those who suffered and the selfless devotion of the rescue workers.

This is not just another 9/11 book, as Sister Helen Prejean says on the back of the book jacket. It is of course about the heroism and charity displayed by the rescue workers, but it also a profound meditation on finding God in difficult times. Father Martin has given us a wonderful gift.

Where was God on September 11th? If you're like most Americans, you still ask that question, even a year later. In this gem of a book, Father James Martin reveals the undeniable truth--that God was everywhere on September 11th and in the horrible weeks that followed. God was in the victims who reached out even in their last moments to comfort one other, in the firefighters who laid down their lives for others, and in the rescuers, who, with inhuman resolve, continued to work, to dig and to hope long after others might have given up. Father Martin seems as surprised as we are when he finds God's grace in that place of unholy evil.
