“Few people have had such a variety of gifts, and such a range of experiences, as Michael Green. So he is able to evaluate firsthand many different ministries, movements and controversies. His views are always forthright, often humorous, sometimes mischievous (as he admits), but never lacking in thoughtfulness or generosity.” —John R. W. Stott, Regent College
“One of the great Christian warriors of this age, my friend Michael Green has a lifetime rich in Christian wisdom to share with the world.” —Charles W. Colson, Prison Fellowship Ministry
“Michael Green has an enviable gift for making you think, squirm, laugh and get real all at the same time, and his review of his full and fruitful life runs true to form. This is vintage Green.” —J. I. Packer, Regent College
