    1. I had the privilege, some time ago, of editing Jamie Arpin-Ricci's book The Cost of Community. I had been introduced to Jamie by my friend Adrianna Wright, and we had the opportunity to travel to Haiti together on a learning mission hosted by Haiti Partners and funded by InterVarsity Press, which had recently published another great book, Following Jesus Through the Eye of a Needle, by another good friend, Kent Annan. Publishing is not always so friendly, so familiar, but when it is, it's partic [...]

    2. I have an alcoholic friend who has been sober for years now. Recently he said in jest, "It is too bad everybody isn't an alcoholic." With hard-won wisdom he added, "Alcoholics need to work through their issues. If I didn't I'd be drunk. If everybody else was alcoholic they'd need to work through their own issues and we'd all be healthier" My friend had been helped by AA's twelve steps. He acknowledged God, his powerlessness before addiction, and has worked through personal issues. Not everybody [...]

    3. Every word that Jamie Arpin Ricci writes is worth taking note of. Its simply because he and his family are living out what he puts into print in his books. If you dont want to be challenged, then dont pick up this book. If you dont want to see real change in your Christian faith, then don't take up the challenges you will find in the pages of this book. If the idea of being real with those around you doesn't appeal, then run away. But if all that sounds like the journey God is taking you on, rea [...]

    4. This is one of the most challenging books I've read in a long time. Having recently read Brene Brown on "Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead", the title of this book caught my eye. It certainly didn't disappoint.Creatively using the story of St Patrick, together with the AA 12 steps program, the author explores how we might move from a life of pretence, rooted in our fear of death (including fear of shame and disconnection), to a li [...]

    5. Great book that is part history, part self-reflection. It makes you think about the way we live life. I liked the history of the life of St. Patrick, learned a lot about the man that I had never known. The way the author blends history, contemporary life and the tenets of AA is wonderful. I believe everyone can learn form this, the book is written from a Christian perspective, but should appeal to all who want to help others. It helps that it's a fairly short book
