He brings warmth, compassion and energy to these dynamic stories that will inspire and motivate the audience.

Here’s what people are saying about Tony:

Tony Agnesi never forgets Who’s in charge. The grace of which he writes isn’t his to dispense; it comes from God. Agnesi doesn’t talk down to his readers; he assumes he’s dealing with adults who sincerely seek God, even in the middle of struggles that seem overwhelming. He knows he’s not writing for angels.

His tone is a gift to his readers: calm and kind, with just enough edge and challenge to inspire even a temporarily-bewildered believer. He’s a guide walking alongside the reader, not goading from behind. —Ellen Kolb, Writer and Pro-Life Blogger

Books like this speak to many, without alienating any.  It’s just honest, and makes you feel good without ever demanding you feel a certain way, or his way, about the story at hand.

He skillfully uses his words to start a conversation, and not end one. And man, do we need more of that in our world today.  —Scott Wynn, WQMX Radio.

The real reason Tony’s book rings with authenticity is he writes about what he knows, what he has experienced as a child, a husband and father, and through his prison and homeless ministry.

Every time Tony offers advice, the reader knows experience and his own personal struggles to grow in the Lord are the foundation for his wisdom—Melanie Jean Juneau, Editor, Catholic Stand

Tony relates time and again our innate need to feel loved, and be reminded of our self-worth despite the circumstances we might find ourselves in. Grace calls our name, and provides the reassurance that God loves us regardless of the past and ushers in the hope of change. —Elizabeth Reardon,

Anyone wanting to grow in virtue will enjoy reading this book! Be assured, Tony Agnesi will make you laugh and cry. His writing will touch your heart. —Virginia Lieto, Author and Blogger at

Rare, however, is the successful storyteller who draws an audience by simply sharing his every day journey to make sense of his own life while being conscious of the needs and struggles of the people he encounters on the street, at Church, in a pharmacy, at a restaurant, in jail, or while battling cancer. —Michael Seagriff, Author and Blogger at Harvesting the Fruits of Contemplation
