PRAISE for Writings of Susan Griffin
Unique. . . fresh and probing. . .strikes at the very heart of America’s cruel paradoxes.
With a light yet devastating touch, Griffin charts our continued “wrestling” with democratic ideals —her incisive search for the soul of democracy stirs up pride, despair, and hope.”
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
