Pádraig Ó Tuama is a kindred artist: his skills as a poet honed for the purpose of the common good. --The Edge, U2

To say that it is one of the most beautiful and quietly necessary books of our young century is a sweeping assertion, but I will make it. . . .An exquisite work of spiritual autobiography. --from the foreword by Krista Tippett, creator and host of On Being

In The Shelter is Pádraig Ó Tuama's meditation on the power of breaking free from our false stories into a truer story, into arms that love us, one small conversion at a time. --Marginalia, Los Angeles Review of Books

So rich. --Brian D. McLaren, author of We Make the Road by Walking

A treasure. . . . Putting to work poetry and gospel, side by side with story and Celtic spirituality, Ó Tuama explores ideas of shelter along life's journey, opening up gentle ways of living well in a troubled world. The reader can't help but be drawn in, slip-sliding into the harbor of the author's soulful words. --Chicago Tribune

Compassionate. Resolute. Confronting. Challenging. Wonderful. Comforting. --Mary McAvoy, Irish Independent

Pádraig Ó Tuama is a writer of intelligence and intellectual acumen who knows that deep conviction well-articulated can convey deep truths. Just to read In the Shelter is to do yourself good. --John L. Bell

This is a beautifully crafted book. Pádraig Ó Tuama welcomes varied topics of reflection with open arms, and the realization of the importance of being 'here' in the present as 'a good place to begin something that might be called prayer.' It is a joy to read. --Sheelah Treflé Hidden
