''Finally, the body is getting its due as the normal and gifted vehicle for Spirit! It has taken us a long time to realize the Christian obvious, and Tricia Gates Brown is making it both more obvious and thoroughly Christian.''
--Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico; Author, Falling Upward
''Like a late night talk with my best friend, Tracia's book gave me intimate insights into her life, my life, and God's love for us. By openly sharing the secrets we typically hide, she invites us to give ourselves the grace God does and to journey toward unreserved living and loving.''
--Susan Mark Landis, former Minister of Peace and Justice, Mennonite Church USA
''An honest, piercing, blunt, lyrical, remarkable writer about the endless chambers of joy and pain in the heart.''
-- Brian Doyle, Author of the novel Mink River
''Jesus Loves Women is a story of grace, of how through the healing beauty of the Pacific coast and the friendship of a Trappist monk, Tricia awakens to a mystical understanding of God's unconditional love. It is the story of how one woman finds freedom from the shame, social conventions, and religious pieties that constrict the lives of all women.''
--James Loney, Author of Captivity: 118 Days in Iraq and the Struggle for the World Without War, in the Foreword.
