redmond_01.jpgSince AMDG Express often mentions book-launches, it should also be allowed to mention books that are not launched, which slip into the shops without benefit of wine, cheese or speeches – and who is to say they do any less good for that? One such is an attractive volume published by Veritas at Easter called So great a cloud. It is Stephen Redmond SJ’s collection of stories about great Christians who he believes are in heaven, and whose witness impressed him. Celebrity sits uneasily on Stephen, but his writings and music over the years deserve celebration, especially the compliment of being enjoyed.
