About-

A Boy Grows in Brooklyn is an educational and spiritual memoir that recounts stories from life in the Midwood interfaith neighborhood during the fifties and sixties. It shares spiritual lessons for living today that are applicable to readers of all ages who yearn for the joy, humor, and challenge discovered in everyday urban life.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"More than a story, a memoir helps us to connect with the resonating challenges, experiences, and questions of our own lives, even when we are living them in a different epoch than the author. This memoir is a reflection that teaches us lessons for our own lives: how to make sense of the world, gather hope, and nurture optimism. For those of us who are religious educators, this memoir gives us an understanding of the educational ecologies that nurture lives, and in particular, the spiritual journey, as it informs and aids the development of the whole self in the world. Read for enjoyment and reflection."
--Elizabeth Conde-Frazier, Academic Dean, Esperanza College, Philadelphia, PA

"I can imagine grandparents (or parents) with grandkids seated on their laps, reading through Robert Pazmino's memoirs for the joy of a shared experience about Pazmino's lessons learned from life. Furthermore, such a shared moment of reading together offers the distinct opportunity for intergenerational conversation about what matters in life, with deep personal sharing from grandparent to grandchild, and vice versa."
--Klaus Issler, Professor of Christian Education and Theology, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, La Mirada, CA
