Reviews - What do customers think about The Grain of Wheat: Aphorisms?
Awesome, as usual with Hans Urs Jan 9, 2010
The force of Balthasar's thought and spiritual experience comes through with great clarity in these aphorisms. Condensed like light through a glass, I find his insights to be strikingly illuminating. I recommend this book very highly.
