"There Are Times that My Eye Welled up with Tears; There Are Times that I Burst Out Laughing": Deacon Kevin McCormack of "Religion on the Line" Endorses "Save Send Delete."

Rabbi Joseph Potasnik and Deacon Kevin McCormack
of WABC's "Religion on the Line." 
On Sunday, June 23, 2013, I was interviewed by Deacon Kevin McCormack and Rabbi Joseph Potasnik of WABC radio's "Religion on the Line."

My fellow blogger, Otto Gross, who blogs about World War II mysteries including the disappearance of the L-8 blimp, kindly recorded the show and posted an mp3 of the interview. You can listen to the interview here.

Amanda Cooney transcribed Deacon Kevin McCormack's endorsement of "Save Send Delete." Here's what he had to say about the book:

***

I downloaded the book off Kindle…and I got hooked into it! It's a journey of faith in a real modern way. It's a real person's struggle with understanding what it is to be a believer in the 21st century.

The book is a pretty neat book! The book is done through emails. You get great reviews! Talk about some of the people who have reviewed your book positively. And it's big names! You and an atheist have this dialogue debate with one another. We live in a society that very often is segregated; people of faith on one side, atheists on the other and there is little discussion between.

I want to reinforce the importance of the book, but also the pleasure of reading the book. This is not a philosophical tome. This is very clever-you are a very funny writer also-I mean there are times that my eye welled up with tears, there are times that I burst out laughing with some of the ways you turned phrases. It was a fun read, I certainly enjoyed it.

There is a tension within it, a personal tension that adds suspense to the whole thing. It's definitely something worth a summer read. If you're looking for something to take with you that's not going to be complete fluff, but is going to have something that is readable and is going to challenge your soul, I can't more thoroughly suggest that you pick up "Save, Send, Delete".

I think God wanted this interview to happen. I am very glad that we could do this. I can't tell people enough, go to Barns and Noble and Amazon. Pick up this book and enjoy it, absolutely enjoy it! It's certainly worth your time and effort. I'm honored that you've become a friend through all of this.
