Sixty years on, Boylan's remarkable spiritual classic is one to which Catholics continually return. In This Tremendous Lover, a Trappist monk speaks clearly and perceptively to the world of priests, religious, or laity still "in the world." �Boylan explains God's plan for our happiness, and how we are each called to participate in this divine plan as members of the Mystical Body of Christ.

This Tremendous Lover has been called a modern version of Introduction to the Devout Life, the timeless sixteenth-century classic by St. Francis de Sales, and it is one of one hundred works on the Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan.
