"There is no one except David Virtue who provides us with timely and essential news, as well as searching biblical analysis of that news.
VOL pulls no punches and David is relentless in pursuing truth, particularly when people are abusing God's Church.
David does not suffer despots in the Church and takes great trouble to expose their conduct.
Amongst the orthodox who write about the Anglican Communion David is guaranteed to have a strong opinion, take a strong stand and sometimes rub people the wrong way.
David never counts the cost so long as what is hidden may be exposed to the light of truth.
-- Rev. Ian Montgomery, Missionary to the Anglican Diocese of Peru
"In spite of the remarkable growth in the number of blogs and websites covering Anglican issues today, trying to find truly reliable and balanced Anglican news has actually become more difficult.
Agendas and biases have replaced journalistic professionalism and integrity as the new guiding forces behind much of what is reported on the web today.
VOL has been delivering the highest quality news and commentary for almost twenty years.
David Virtue's timely interviews and comprehensive analysis always give me the most accurate and insightful reports of what really matters to me and to my Anglican family.
David Virtue's ministry is definitely on my prayer list and hope everyone will do that.
Even as far as saying it outloud during the prayers of the people during Sunday service.
