Lessons in Humility Oct 5, 2005
Decades before Thomas Merton began to write Charles de Foucauld began to live! And live as Jesus IN Nazareth (as opposed to Jesus OF Nazareth). I was overwhelmed with the humility that enveloped this monk's life. Truly inspirational. Highly recommend to help put a perspective on our place in the world today.
Splendid and dynamic Mar 17, 2001
This is a most marvellous book by Ellsberg which explores the spirituality of father de Foucauld in a simple and easily understandable way.The preface is well researched and clearly written giving a solid base with which to enter the concepts that De Foucauld explores in his writings.A book to encourage the christian to form a more profound relationship with the Lord
