With its hard-nosed realism and passion for God, this memoir should appeal to people of faith across the political spectrum.–Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Surrounded by violence and poverty and threatened by urban renewal, Transfiguration Lutheran Church under pastor Neumark survived and, perhaps miraculously, thrived . . . Her story proves genuinely inspirational as we follow her from despair and frustration to cautious optimism in the face of a still tenuous future.” —Booklist

Breathing Space is a beautifully produced book, and it has a utopian poignancy . . . Yet it is grounded in the virtue of hope.”–James S. Torrens, America: The National Catholic Weekly

Winner of a 2004 Wilbur Award
