'The Compassion Quest is clearly a book aimed to achieve practical results. The author makes it clear that its purpose is not to be referenced by students of theology, or to contribute to contemporary Christian debates. Rather it is a book that seeks to change the reader. I can say then, with confidence, that the book certainly made me stop and think, and that it has forced me to reconsider the way I view myself and my relationships. I can't say I've become a more compassionate person since reading the book, but I certainly want to be more compassionate, and that alone is a significant achievement for such a small, readable book.' --On Religion
'If someone were to ask me which two books, beside the Bible, they should read in order to assist their Christian journey, I would suggest The Shack by William Paul Young and The Compassion Quest by Trystan Owain Hughes. The Compassion Quest is, in my view, the ultimate manual on compassion.' --Geoffrey Lunn, Croeso (Diocese of Llandaff)
'Gentle, learned and culturally aware, [The Compassion Quest] offers a rich understanding of Christian faith as an invitation to find ourselves not so much by looking within, but by turning outwards to others and to God.' --Graham Tomlin, Dean, St Mellitus College, London
