"Self-scrutiny takes courage since what we see first can be daunting: darker motives, such as greed, lust, envy and laziness that mire us in self-condemnation. But, as Bruce Kirkpatrick writes so bravely in his memoir Lumberjack Jesus, the Lord's guidance can deliver us from the pit of pain, lifting us up with the love that passes all understanding." - Nancy Anderson, Author of Work with Passion

"The author beautifully weaves situation from his life with stories from the Bible to underline and explain the understanding of his faith. An enjoyable read." - Diamante Lavender, Award-winning author of Breaking the Silence
