“Don DeMarco has once again provided his reading audience with a strong testimony in support of human life, not just in this part or in that part of our existence, but in all of it. He models within this book the famous observation by St. Irenaeus, that ‘the glory of God is man fully alive, but man fully alive is man when he sees God.'” – Dr. Sebastian Mahfood, OP, Associate Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies, Holy Apostles College & Seminary

Professor DeMarco is a national Catholic treasure.  His work gives witness to our faith in a world which is increasingly seeking to exclude Christian perspectives from the public square.” – Phil Horgan, President of the Catholic Civil Rights League (CCRL)
