Insights (Spring 2006) "[Farley] has struck a resonant chord by accomplishing something not seen since Paul Tillich and Karl Rahner: Christian theology that employs broadly 'secular' language in communicating the depth of our brokenness and desire for healing." --David H. Jensen, Austin Seminary

Christian Century (May 30, 2006) "[T]his book gives an account of humanity's deep woundedness and its capacity for deep healing. The book's vivid style and lush imagery are reminiscent of Showings, by Julian of Norwich." --Amy Plantiga Pauw

The Presbyterian Outlook (May 8, 2006) "[A] treasure trove of wonderful images that bring into focus possibilities for practice and proclamation that can make churches more healing and transforming places in our broken world. Farley's work is a gift to theologians, pastors, preachers, teachers, believers, seekers, and quite simply to humanity in general." --Marcia Mount Shoop, associate pastor for education, First Church in Oakland, California

Christian Century (Dec. 13, 2005) From CC Recommends "[A]n elegantly woven and poignantly written account of the wounding and healing of longing."
