Reviews

"This extraordinary book is both a treasure and a triumph. It is an inspiring testament to the ways in which rigorous spiritual practice can help us deal with acute suffering, pain, fear, and death... Lotus in the Fire proves the benefits of spiritual practice as supportive tool and a key to healing."--Frederic A. Brussat, Spirituality & Health

"[Bedard's] riveting, taut, and very moving survivor's story will appeal to readers of all faiths. A wake-up call to live life to the fullest, told with modest understatement and no New Age jargon, his book will inspire patients and their families coping with illnesses, as well as anyone coming to terms with death."--Publishers Weekly
