"Father Greeley has given great attention to the role of imagination in the life of faith. What he is doing is re-evangelizing the imagination, using fiction to address the faith and the mysteries of the faith. That's an extraordinarily significant project." --Cardinal Francis George, archbishop of Chicago
"Nobody has ever left the church because of an Andrew Greeley novel, but many have been attracted back to it by him." --Reverend Ron Rolheiser, O.M.I.
"Michael Collins is now recognized as the lost leader of the 20th century. If he had lived, it is probable that Collins could have ended the Irish troubles. He had the vision and leadership skills to stop the killing and bring all parties to the negotiating table. Drawing from the letters of Collins, Greeley portrays the Irish leader as romantic, sensitive and introspective. Greeley's Collins is also tough." --Chicago Sun-Times on Irish Gold
"A tale of young love and faith with a cast of characters, Irish and American, that very well may open Greeley's work to a generation of new readers." --Chicago Tribune on Irish Gold
"A first-rate adventure story." --Baltimore Sun on Irish Gold
