Reviews

‘Just a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate reading your essays. They really speak to my condition, such powerful words. I got stuck in the first ones, just reading certain passages over and over again. They’re like beads in a tasbih, beautiful.’ (Pieter-Jan van Eggermont, Sweden)

‘Wonderful book. Got it on my Kindle.’ (Maryam Janice Muhibullah, United States)
