On 6/18 Mary Stewart Anthony wrote: Rarely have I reviewed a book so loaded with spiritual dynamite, or been so pleasantly surprised by an author's insights.

On 4/12 A. Andrew Joyce wrote: This book is like a fairy tale, kind of: everything turns out right in the end. Mostly. It's an apt description, for this book attempts to describe the real life fairy tale that we are all living: The Romance of Religion: fighting for goodness, truth, and beauty. Even if fairy tales aren't your cup of ... So much potential

On 4/8 Thrifty Christy wrote: This book is a sort of “Religion for English Majors.” The Romance of Religion is beautifully written, and I really enjoyed reading it in small pieces. The author is obviously a lover of literature, and I don’t think there’s a page in this book that doesn’t include a literary or pop culture ... Religion for English Majors

On 4/4 Danny Conner wrote: Religious impulse is often viewed in the worlds of art and science as being unimaginative and not informed by logic. According to Longenecker, those perceptions should be changed, and that is exactly what he sets out to change within this book. This book serves as an apologetic of beauty by revealing ...

On 3/26 Sarah Brown wrote: I don't know where to begin with this book. It's good, there are many things that he writes that would be great quotes. There's a lot of alliteration, and a lot to take in. I found myself nodding at a lot of the things he said, but I also found myself putting it down for days to allow myself to digest ... The Romance Of Good Writing
