'But if you wish to know how these things come about ask grace not instruction, desire not understanding, the groaning of prayer not diligent reading, the Spouse not the teacher, God not man, darkness not clarity, not light but the fire that totally enflames and carries us into God by ecstatic unctions and burning affections. This fire is God and his furnace is in Jerusalem...' --Bonaventure, 1217-1274

Bonaventure

User Review  - marylois - Overstock.com

I bought this book for a class on St. Bonaventure. The book arrived quickly (in 2 or 3 days)and in excellent condition! Purchasing through Overstock was less than any other place I had checked online, including shipping, and definitely less than purchasing it in local bookstores. Read full review

Review: Bonaventure (Classics of Western Spirituality)

User Review  - Brian - Goodreads

Read 2nd of the three books included in this volume, Tree of Life, a devotional treatise on the life of Jesus. Worshipful and beautiful, notwithstanding the occasional faulty exegesis and flawed theology. Read full review
