Reviews

“…When dealing with conflict or controversy, whether in a school situation or in the wider Church, he proposes ways to respect both sides, without abandoning his own convictions, surely this reconciling voice needs to be heard today…a valuable resource for Christian teachers and for anyone working with the young. The combination of solid commitment to traditional values, along with sensitivity and openness to the rising generation, could go a long way to revive Christian formation.”—The Living Church, 8/15/2010

Acclaim for Volume One:

Father Stuart Dunnan is a Priest-Headmaster in the great tradition of Dr.Thomas Arnold of Rugby and Dr. Peabody of Groton, with the crowning grace of being an Anglo-Catholic in substance and style. He communicates with clarity, straight-forwardness and love (which may sometimes need to be tough). Long may he, and what he represents, prosper and flourish for the good of the children and the adults they become.
—The Reverend Andrew C. Mead, OBE, DD
Rector, Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, New York, New York

Stuart Dunnan writes with uncommon clarity and with uncommon charity. Here is a voice of Anglican moderation just when we need it most.
—The Reverend F. Washington Jarvis
Headmaster Emeritus, The Roxbury Latin School, Boston, Massachusetts

At a time when many church schools have lost sight of the deep grounding that can be given by religious faith in the education of young people from any background, Stuart Dunnan has continued to mine the Christian tradition for insight and inspiration. The results have been transformative not only for St. James School, but for anyone who comes in contact with his immensely humane and godly wisdom.
—The Very Reverend Joseph Britton
President and Dean, Berkeley Divinity School at Yale University, New Haven,
Connecticut

Stuart Dunnan has a big and lifelong heart for young people. He actually listens to them! This makes his sermons and essays redolent of wisdom and also of tenderness. Plus, miracle of miracles in our skittish day, he is committed publicly to the deep wisdom of the Christian Faith. Wisdom, tenderness and Hope: what more can we ask?
—The Reverend Dr. Paul Zahl
Rector, All Saints’ Church, Chevy Chase, Maryland
