Endorsements & Reviews-

“In moving poetry, Al Staggs has given us a book that raises all the questions that should be raised about our consumerist and materialistic society. This is not only an intellectual challenge but it is a moral challenge as well.”

—Tony Campolo, PhD



“You continue to nail the sin of our time—greed and gluttony at the top, despair and tedium below, and a great chasm without empathy in between. In doing so, you continue to remind me of the power of one man’s witness, a single light in his hand as darkness settles around us. But from that one small beacon shines the hope that is the beginning of redemption.”

—Bill Moyers
