Overview

For nearly sixty years, Catholics have found in this remarkable spiritual classic a profound guide to living in Christ. Dom Mary Eugene Boylan, O.C.R., was an Irish priest and Trappist monk whose writings drew from his extensive experience as a confessor, spiritual director, and retreat master.

In This Tremendous Lover, first published in 1946, he offers a compelling view of the spiritual life grounded in a vision of the Mystical Body of Christ.

The author draws us into what he calls the love story of God and man. With rare clarity and consistency, he lays out a practical program of humility, charity, and abandonment to the will of God. Addressing a variety of spiritual topics— prayer, the Sacraments, spiritual reading, loving our neighbor, marriage, and much more— he shows how all these aspects of Christian life converge in God's great work of redemption.

Once one has caught a glimpse of the meaning of God's plan to restore all things in Christ, Dom Boylan teaches, one has the key, not only to the whole history of the universe, but also to the history and destiny of one's own soul. All the details of the spiritual life fall into their proper perspective, and the quest of perfection is seen to be both possible and reasonable for every Christian.

This new edition of Dom Boylan's beloved spiritual work, revised and edited by Paul Thigpen, Ph.D. contains new introductory essays and revised and expanded notes. It promises to fulfill once again the author's stated purpose for writing it: to foster the development of union with God in the lives of the faithful.
