Endorsements & Reviews-

"Moving, articulate, and insightful, this book is a welcome exploration of men's spiritual journey at midlife. Written by an author with his own extraordinary middle passage, the book provides practical insights for men, while offering women an invaluable window into men's souls."
-Allan Chinen, author of Beyond the Hero: Classic Stories of Men in Search of Soul

"Lively and unembarrassed, written with great psychological acumen, Crossing the Soul's River is a major contribution to our understanding of men at midlife. This is the conversation men need to have with another man when their familiar old assumptions and priorities no longer make sense. Give it to a man you really care about. Give it to a woman who wants to know men at the core."
-Stephen Bank, coauthor of The Sibling Bond

"Crossing the Soul's River is one of the second generation of men's books that are trying to chart concrete steps men can take to do the work we need to do to become more self-actualized and, therefore, more responsible partners, citizens, and churchmen . . . [Roberts's] articulation of men's needs for the wisdom of Sophia is the clearest I have ever read."
-Stephen Boyd, author of The Men We Long to Be: Beyond Lonely Warriors and Desperate Lovers

"William O. Roberts's compelling book puts the male midlife crisis into its deepest context-the growth of ourselves as spiritual beings. In so doing it moves well beyond treatments which focus solely on the psychological dimension of this process-though Roberts details these too with a sharp, insightful eye honed by his own personal experience. Most helpful is his detailing of various rites of passage designed to help men navigate through this difficult time. In this the book is of practical as well as intellectual use. I found the book deeply insightful and altogether illuminating."
-Brian Fay, author of Contemporary Philosophy of Social Science: A Multicultural Approach
