PRAISE for Writings of Susan Griffin

Susan Griffin has removed the rhetorical clichés from democracy and revealed a breathing, sentient angel of wisdom now held captive by tyranny, money, and our misplaced faith in authority. This is nothing less than cultural poetry steeped in history and heart.”
— PAUL HAWKEN, Author of Blessed Unrest

Susan Griffin’s superb prose reveals democracy not as a distant abstraction but as a live, inspiring, and difficult presence shaping us every day, an angel all Americans wrestle with.”

In the twenty-fifth century, when historians reflect back on this trauma for the entire Earth Community, Susan Griffin will celebrated as a light that led us forward.  She has a stature comparable to that of Hannah Arendt, of Lewis Mumford, of Matilda Joslyn Gage and I am certain that people will be pouring over her books for centuries.” — BRIAN SWIMME  author of The Universe Story
