In this extraordinary journal, James Martin, S.J., recounts the days of working with firefighters, police officers, and rescue workers laboring in the ruins of the World Trade Center. "Searching for God at Ground Zero" leads readers into a world not only traumatized by the attacks of September 11, 2001, but also galvanized by overwhelming love and solidarity. (Sheed & Ward)


James Martin, S.J. is associate editor of America, the national Catholic magazine. Fr. Martin is author of In Good Company: The Fast Track from the Corporate World to Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience (Sheed & Ward).


This isn't just one more book about the September 11 tragedy. Here are stories of one human being descending into the hell of Ground Zero to offer his help - but with this difference: Jim Martin is like God's bloodhound, sniffing out grace, redemption, and consolation wherever he can find it. Up against such impenetrable darkness we long for a glimmer of light - and Jim's tiny lantern of faith gives us glints of that light. -- Sister Helen Prejean, C.S.J A vivid and inspiring account of how God's loving presence could be experienced amid the smoldering ruins of the Twin Towers. Father Martin's unusual combination of gifts as priest and journalist enables him to convey, in simple lapidary prose, both the grief of those who suffered and the selfless devotion of the rescue workers. -- Avery Cardinal Dulles S.J.
