By Crossroads Publishing,

On Tuesday, May 13, beloved Pastor, valued Crossroad author and friend Father Robert J. Cormier died in a climbing accident on Mount Hood in Oregon. He had reached the summit. A priest of the Archdiocese of Newark, N.J., Robert J. Cormier was a preacher, teacher, theologian, and pilot. His recent book, Better Than We Believed, ( was granted Honorable Mention in the prestigious Eric Hoffer Awards—an honor that was announced the same day that Fr. Cormier died. He is also the author of Why We Look Up, and A Faith That Makes Sense.

Gwendolin Herder, publisher of The Crossroad Publishing Company, has worked with Fr. Cormier for nearly 20 years. “Fr. Bob was passionate about God, a God who–he was convinced–did not want to hide behind formulas removed twice from peoples’ life experience today.”
