    I received much from reading his books & his inclusive approach to the Christian gospel. To settle into one of Fr Ken’s books was like having your own personal spiritual director. He was thoroughly Catholic & thoroughly personable in his writings at the same time. May he rest in peace. Fr Philip Bewley, Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia.
