This Tremendous Lover
In this remarkable spiritual classic, first published in 1946, Dom Eugene Boylan, O.C.R., offers a compelling account of the spiritual life as a transforming union with the Lord who pursues us.
Once one has caught a glimpse of the meaning of God's plan to restore all things in Christ, Dom Boylan teaches, one has the key, not only to the whole history of the universe, but also to the history and destiny of one's own soul. All the details of the spiritual life fall into their proper perspective, and the quest of perfection is seen to be both possible and reasonable for every Christian.
This new edition of Dom Boylan's beloved spiritual work, with new introductory essays and revised and expanded notes, promises to fulfill once again the author's stated purpose for writing it: to foster the development of union with God in the lives of the faithful.The author draws us into what he calls the love story of God and man. With rare clarity and consistency, he lays out a practical program of humility, charity, and abandonment to the will of God. Addressing a variety of spiritual topics— prayer, the Sacraments, spiritual reading, loving our neighbor, marriage, and much more— he shows how all these aspects of Christian life converge in God's great work of redemption.
