    1. A very clear, simple, yet thorough introduction to the spirituality of St. Josemaria, a spirituality for living in the world and living a truly holy life. Everyone who is serious about their spiritual life, should read this book.


    2. Friendship has a powerful impact on people's behavior. Parents often worry that their children will succumb to "peer pressure," implicitly acknowledging the power that friends can have on someone's life. Children aren't the only ones influenced in this way -- adults, too, allow their personalities and choices to be shaped by the company they keep. Communal-ness is part of human nature. We want to be accepted by others. We don't want to seem odd. Natural as this is, it, too, often leads people aw [...]


    3. Eric Sammons and Our Sunday Visitor have provided us with an amazing book and excellent resource for spiritual growth.

    5. I'm a big fan of Eric Sammons and his book-writing. When he wrote me and asked me to take a look at this one, I couldn't say no. His last book was one of my favorites, after all, and I was curious after seeing the title to this one.It's not a biography, but more like a braid of St. Josemaria's wisdom and spirituality and the life we all struggle to live. Sammons does a great job of keeping it real, of making the theories into practices that apply even to me.I found myself marking this book, thin [...]


    6. I was very intrigued by this book before I ever opened it. For starters, Scott Hahn wrote the foreword to this book, and I automatically assume anything he puts his name on has to be good. I was also intrigued by the spirituality members of Opus Dei (the order St. Josemaria Escriva founded) practiced. I knew it wasn't the exaggerated tales Dan Brown concocted in his book The Da Vinci Code, but I didn't know what all it entailed.There are two main parts to this book. The first part is called "Lay [...]


    7. Good introduction to St. Josemaria Escriva, makes me want to read more of his writings. "Holiness for Everyone" really sums up the theme of this book: everyone is called to become a saint no matter what their status in life. Nothing too ground breaking in this book but it was an easy read with a lot of good information in it.
