"Jack's Prayer poems... are deeply religious and deeply rooted in our life experience.  They confront, they shock, they challenge, but they also embrace, console and comfort.  They speak about Jesus, Magdalene, Peter and the prodigal son, but they also speak about traffic jams, waiting children, old people's homes and Humphrey bogart.  They are serious but full of humor​, pointing to deep meanings, but staying very close to the street on which we live."

Henry Nouwen
