The Other Journal "It gives us plenty of discussion fodder for the after-movie trip to the pub… or the coffee shop, for those Christians who are wary of pubs."

Wilamette Week "If you’re a smug atheist like me, you’ll come into Holy Rollers looking to shake your fist and roar “Hypocrisy!” But you won’t, because these kids will have probably converted you with their genuine niceness, strong moral convictions and infectious positivity."
