Solange Hertz has established herself as an astute contemporary student of lay spirituality and as a writer whose freshness and frankly human approach have merited high praise from readers in all walks of like. In Come Down, Zacchaeus, she turns her skill to the interpretation of Scripture in an attempt to demonstrate that it is not just instructive; it is vitally related to our everyday lives. And it is readable and enjoyable as well. Her enthusiasm is infectious. Perhaps few readers would have thought that there could be so much practical wisdom stored up for their use in such stories as those of Ruth, Judith, Esther, the Gerasene demoniac --- and Balaam’s Ass. One must particularly admire her courage in tackling the tale of Judith, which even the more seasoned scripture scholars handle with fire tongs. Her interpretations reveal that Solange Hertz has read widely and thought deeply about Holy Writ. In addition to this, it is obvious that she enjoys it. Perhaps her perceptive and happy insights will encourage others to approach the reading of Scripture with greater courage. Come Down, Zacchaeus is highly recommended to anyone and everyone, but especially to those who have the idea that the Bible is formidable.

About the Author:
An established writer before the Second Vatican Council, Solange Hertz wrote for most Catholic periodicals and had five books to her credit, one a selection of the Catholic Literary Foundation. When she refused to adjust her theology to the new "Spirit of Vatican II," her manuscripts almost overnight became unacceptable to her former editors. After a series of articles on feminine spiritual for the old Triumph magazine, she continued speaking for tradition by successfully producing on her own, The Thought of His Heart, and Sin Revisited.
In 1973 she began writing the Big Rock Papers, published privately throughout the next decade and the source of the highly acclaimed Star Spangled Heresy: Americanism, published in 1992. Currently her articles can be found in The Remnant, and abroad in Apropos, Christian Order and Action Familiale et Scolaire. Mrs. Hertz is universally regarded as one of traditional Catholicism's foremost contemporary writers and lecturers.
