Bernard of Clairvaux Nov 10, 2006
A good introduction to the life and work of Bernard. While presenting him i a very favourable way the introduction tries to establish balance.
Great Spiritual Reading. Feb 21, 2002
Anyone, I mean anyone searching for a greater understanding on such things as Loving God, Humility and Pride,or conversion of Heart, or many other Topic, should Consider this book as a treasury of Wisdon. St. Bernard takes complicated ideas and concepts and makes them clear for those of us without the Saintly Mind. I would certantly say that his writings are some of the best in All of Christian history. This translation is consice and leaves nothing of importance out, I commend the translator on this edition. My hopes are that many will find this book a great help in your own Spiritual Journey.
