THIS WEEK, we were pleased to see that The Presbyterian Outlook magazine reviewed (and recommended) Bill Tammeus’s book about “unplugging extremism,” Love, Loss and Endurance: A 9/11 Story of Resilience and Hope in an Age of Anxiety.
Here’s a link to read that column by Christine Chakoian, which says in part: “Readers will be deeply moved by Tammeus’ vivid sharing of their family’s loss—not a distant disaster eliciting ‘thoughts and prayers,’ but a particular grief that ripples across time. Through the story of his nephew’s death, Tammeus deliberately, thoughtfully reveals family relationships in their fragility and endurance; poignant memories revisited again and again; and joy that is savored, even as trauma is reignited.” Chakoian, then, goes on to stress the importance of Bill’s message that “unplugging extremism” begins with choices made by each of us as well as our congregations and communities.

Bill passed along a link to this important coverage to our publishing-house staff and we’re now able to share that with thousands of our readers through this column—and a news item in our weekly www.ReadTheSpirit.com online magazine.
Media Mentions are very valuable in building awareness of new books.
Here’s a column I wrote two years ago that’s just as relevant today:
