"Reading Museum of Voices reminded me of Adam and Eve in the Garden before the so-called fall from innocence-'naked and not ashamed'. Valusek discards most of the usual defenses behind which an author tends to hide. What an audacious, risky and priceless endeavor."
-Stephen A. Laucik, author of Darkness & Dreams: A Spiritual Journey through Separation and Divorce

After a lifetime of searching both for God and for his vocation as a spiritual leader and teacher, Valusek lost his faith. The sudden, unforeseen collapse of his Christian worldview led him to a unique form of life review. He began reading, selecting and editing a variety of "scribblings" he had accumulated over a period of 35 years, listening to the sound of his own voice-or voices-for new meaning and direction.

Valusek decided to publish Museum of Voices in the hope that it might speak a word of wisdom or warning to others as well. "I've tried to be honest here," he writes. "I've tried not to whitewash myself, or edit out the messiness of my life, my stupid mistakes, my idiosyncrasies. If I can accept and forgive the messes I've made, maybe you'll accept yours a little easier."
