What are people saying about the book?

‘This book sets out vital principles, tells compelling stories, and inspires and challenges readers to live and make new stories of their own. It is an invitation not just to a way of thinking, but to a way of life. It springs from the principles worked out in Coventry over seven decades, and shows how they can transform the world today. As the authors say, “Reconciliation is not an aspect of Christian living, for a few enthusiasts – it is the gospel.” I warmly commend it. This is a great book.’ - The Very Revd John Witcombe, Dean of Coventry
