"Carl Jung said that people do not change in the presence of concepts nearly as much as in the presence of images. People change, inspire, and challenge people! This is one good reason why we must re-issue this wonderful book every few years, with ever new examples of holy and wonderful lives."—Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico
