Significant commentators had this to say about A Spiritual Odyssey:
1. "Some of the medical descriptions chill the blood but the religious explorations are heart-warming, ranging from reading theologians as different as Sean Fagan and Basil Hume, to a meeting with the sensible and down-to-earth Sister Briege McKenna, and to a pilgrimage through the holy places of France, all of which makes this a fine exposition of the riches of the Catholic tradition
[David McLaurin, The Tablet]
2...well written and should appeal to readers who draw inspiration from accounts of others' experiences. Of interest to public libraries.
[Denise J. Stankovics, Connecticut Library Association Review, USA ]
3. Intelligent and sensitive...very moving...gives a graphic account of suffering and anguish...gives us wonderful vignettes of people he met on his journey. His description of Lourdes is truly evocative and marvellous.
[Anthony Redmond, The Irish Catholic]
