“This is a very unusual, perhaps even a unique biography. Father Rutler does more than give the “facts” about the life of the Cure of Ars. With bold strokes, like a master Chinese calligrapher, he captures the spirit of the age in which he lived, unveils the sanctity of a humble parish priest, and gets to the heart of what it means to be a priest–not just then, but now and for all time. Along the way Father Rutler brilliantly shows that the Cure of Ars is a priest for all seasons.” Kenneth Baker, S.J. editor, HOMILETIC AND PASTORAL REVIEW Paper.
