Reviews

I consider Trevor Hudson to be a wonderful friend. He must be because even after my wife started using one of his books (instead of mine) for a college course she was teaching on spiritual formation, I still like him. And she's certain to begin using Discovering Our Spiritual Identity, because I can hardly imagine a better resource for Christ-following; like the author, it is practical and profound.
