"This compilation of sermons and talks by religious leaders around the country following the events of September 11 provides an extraordinary look at a less visible aftermath of the tragedy...The spontaneity, the laughter and clapping of the congregations, the pauses and tears are genuine and strangely comforting."--Publishers Weekly (audio review)
