Reviews - What do customers think about Bernard of Clairvaux: Sermons for Advent And the Christmas Season (Cistercian Fathers Series)?
A renewal of faith. May 4, 2008
Saint Bernard of Clairvaux has been called the voice of conscience and dominated the Catholic church for nearly thirty years. "Bernard of Clairvaux: Sermons for Advent and the Christmas Season" is a compilation of his sermons, a definite but highly complex message he wished to convey to the world: that the Word of the gospel wishes to be reincarnated in the reader by being read, that the gospel lives on in the words, and that reading the word will grant one personal recognition of the true divine nature of the word. Translated from the original Latin by Irene Edmonds, Wendy Mary Beckett, & Conrad Greenia; edited by John Leinenweber with an introduction by Wim Verbaal, "Bernard of Clairvaux: Sermons for Advent and The Christmas Season" is highly recommended to community library religious study shelves or anyone seeking a renewal of faith.
