Some of the Canterbury earthquake stories are well known. For some of the hidden gems from people who do not seek publicity, I highly recommend this book. - Lois Farrow, Christian Writers Guild, Christchurch.
Treasure trove of information

An inspiring account
This is an inspiring account of the churches response to their own communities and the compassion of those from far afield who were urged to respond in meaningful and appropriate ways to help the people in our region in their need. The book is easy to read and the breadth of comment across denominations and ethnic communities is a pleasure to see.
My congratulations and I hope that many others will be inspired by what has not been mentioned much in the media."
- Diana Shakespeare, Workplace Support.
"So many times in the wake of suffering, the Christian Church - the body of Christ - faithfully responds with comfort and practical help. I saw that in person in Christchurch the year after the quake, and thank Melissa Parsons for honouring those who responded in the footsteps of the One for whom the city was named."
