Great Review for Under the Influence of Jesus!

Thanks to U.S. Catholic (May, 2014 issue) for a very positive review of my book Under the Influence of Jesus: The Transforming Experience of Encountering Christ.

The review, by Alfred J. Garrotto, says the following:

Joe Paprocki’s latest book, Under the Influence of Jesus, models adult faith formation at its best: faith-full, contemporary, and applicable to everyday life. Readers who approach this book with the “same-old, same-old” expectations risk missing both its evangelical passion and its down-to-earth/up-to-heaven spirituality.

The review goes on to say that “Under the Influence of Jesus invites today’s Catholics to indulge in the same intoxicating submission to the mystery of the Risen Christ that sparked the birth of Christianity. This book does more than inspire renewal of the reader’s faith.”

Thanks to Alfred J. Garrotto and U.S. Catholic! The review is not yet available online however as soon as it is, I’ll let you know.
