Library Journal Review

Death-row pastor and activist Callahan delivers what her title promises: a group of straight-shooting talks on the big questions, plain and folksy as a shoo-fly pie--and often as pleasing and as welcome. Callahan's words and experience are more inspiring than she herself perhaps realizes: her ardent but simply stated pacifism, opposition to bigotry, and Christian feminism lift the heart. Christianity, to her, is the realization of the potential offered by God. Her theology deserves a wide popularity. Highly recommended. (c) Copyright 2010.
