From the Foreword by Bp. Kallistos Ware, "Running through all three of my initial encounters with Isaac was a single theme: the primacy of love. It is love that provides an explanation- so far as any explanation is possible - for the creation of the universe and for the Incarnation of Christ. It is love that enables us, as nothing else can do, compassionately to embrace and transfigure the suffering of the world. And it is the logic of divine love that provides a key to the dark mystery of hell...Never before, outside Holy Scripture, had I found someone who could say so much in so few words." My own heart often leapt with joy as I encountered Isaac's breathtaking description and embrace of the love of God for his whole creation.
