Kenneth L. Woodward, religion editor, Newsweek, author of Making Saints

January 1, 2022

“In these short, splendidly wrought profiles, Robert Ellsberg gives us a vigorous cloud of witnesses—mystics, martyrs, social activists, artists, writers, composers—who do what all saints do: mediate the many and surprising ways in which grace makes discipleship possible. John Paul II has called for a millennial martyrology of unofficial witnesses to the faith who died in this century; he should start with this book.  The Maritains, Bloy and Bernanos, Mozart, Bach and Barth, Heschel and the Baal Shem Tov—all find their places in this richly imagined collection of mediating figures in a spiritual communion of many faiths.”
