Reviews

"Veronica Mary Rolf has written a series of beautifully clear and direct meditations on how the biblical story traces our own developmental history and invites us to understand ourselves more deeply by reading ourselves into the text and the text into ourselves."

-- from the Foreword by Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury

"Suddenly There is God is deeply scholarly, deeply accessible, deeply faithful, deeply scriptural, deeply poetic, deeply personal, deeply integrated, deeply readable, deeply converting, deeply catholic, and deeply connecting. For thirty years I have been selecting and forming people for ordination; if all they did was to read and digest this soigne book, their ministry and spirituality would be remarkable, and their sermons absolutely stunning!"

--David Wilbourne, Honorary Assistant Bishop of York

"Martin Buber said that the Bible is not a theology for us but an anthropology for God. With insightful interpretation of the texts, Veronica Mary Rolf shows us that it is an anthropology for us as well, revealing how God deals with humanity, from biblical characters to our own lives."

--Carolyn Osiek, RSCJ, Fischer Professor of New Testament, Emerita, Brite Divinity School

"Good literature introduces you to yourself. These insightful reflections do just that. Clear and compassionate. This book belongs on your coffee table where your friends and your children can chance upon it. Veronica Mary Rolf is a trustworthy mentor."

--Ronald Rolheiser, OMI President, Oblate School of Theology, San Antonio, Texas, and author of The Holy Longing
