Book description
Bernard is one of the greatest mystics of Christianity. From him and others of his time period but especially Bernard the whole notion of romantic love and chivalry stems. Bernard's rich style the work of a master poet is redolent with an inviting warmth that lets the reader discover union with God to be the intimate and all-fulfilling embrace of lovers. It is an embrace that transforms us and makes us truly Godlike. This book is part of the popular and successful profiles series in which great religious writers are profiled with anthologies compiled and commented on by noted experts. After a short introduction by the compiler Saint Bernard himself takes us in hand and leads us along the way to the fullness of the life in Christ. the selections of Bernard's ever-beautiful prose offered here are varied enough to introduce the reader to all of the Saint's more important writings.     (From amazon.com on 03/15/2016)
