KIRKUS REVIEW

This should have a double market, with the emphasis, perhaps, in the religious book department (add to supplement index). A boldly different biography in which a wife tells the story of her husband's life. Dietrich was a free thinker, a humanist, one time Unitarian minister. From a Pittsburgh parish to Spokane, to Minneapolis, to California, he always moved on as the result of explosions which blew up successive congregations as he out grew his group. He thought beyond the confines of their minds, the fabric of their imaginations. The young wife -- though often disagreeing with him -- refused to be daunted. Humor and understanding -- she had both in good measure, and needed them. Far from dull reading.
