MEDIA REVIEWS

"His comments are so invigorating, I felt the urge to shout 'Amen.'"--"Deseret Morning News"


"A story worth telling."--"Salt Lake City Weekly"


"A compelling, moving, painful, and in the end, celebratory life. The book's strength is that it is well-written."--"Utah Historical Quarterly"


"Davis provides, without a doubt, significant information and details about who he is, not merely as a public figure but, perhaps more important, as a private man who is pastor, teacher, son, husband, father, and grandfather. Significantly, in the process he reminds us of where he came from. A candid portrait of an individual who is most complex, committed and spiritual."--"Utah Historical Quarterly
