On the densely and richly populated Polish intellectual scene, Stanisław Obirek is one of the most prominent and significant, indeed outstanding actors. He stands out from the rest of actors for the role he designed and scripted for himself and has been consistently, over many years, performing; (...) a role that follows no ready-made scripts and lines, a role that Obirek originated and developed (...) and which it have succeeded by now to make an indispensable part of the Polish intellectual life.
One should be grateful to the publishers for collecting, (...) the manifold Obirek's writings on the subjects ranging from the general condition of religion in contemporary world, through the problems related to the Church's place and role in society (...). and up to the convoluted, intricate and puzzling case of the Polish-Jewish relation, which Stanisław Obirek is not the first Catholic tackling, but perhaps the first scholar attempting to approach it as a Catholic. One should be graleful to the publishers, as what they offer the readers is a genuine treasure-trove of fascinating findings, convincing interpretations and inspiring visions, which will most certainly earn a distinguished and durable place in the ongoing debates in Poland, but also all around our disunited yet struggling to unite planet.
