Overview

In print for over sixty years, Dom Eugene 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. This new edition includes a foreword by Lawrence S. Cunningham, a professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame.

Meet the Author

Dom Eugene Boylan, O.C.R., was an Irish-born Trappist monk and writer who was born in 1904 and died in 1964. Ordained a priest in 1937, he began writing on spiritual topics, and in the 1940s he published two books, This Tremendous Lover and Difficulties in Mental Prayer, which became international bestsellers and were translated into many languages. In the late 1950s he undertook an extensive lecture tour of the United States ("This is the best retreat we ever had at Gethsemani," commented Thomas Merton after Boylan's visit there), and in 1962 he was elected the fourth abbot of Mount St. Joseph Abbey in Roscrea, Ireland. Two years later he died in an automobile accident.

Lawrence S. Cunningham is the John A. O'Brien Emeritus Professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame. A leading US scholar and award-winning professor, Cunningham is best known for his work in the areas of systematic theology and culture, Catholic spirituality, and Catholic saints.
Cunningham has edited or written over twenty-five books and is the Christianity editor of the forthcoming Norton Anthology of World Religions. His most recent books are Things Seen and Unseen and An Introduction to Catholicism. Cunningham has won three Catholic Press Association awards for religious writing and has been the “Booknotes” columnist for Commonweal for over ten years.

    The Greatest Love Story Between God and Man

    Few books bring one to the depth of loving Jesus as this one does. It offers such beautiful and often heart-rending insights into the love Jesus has for each of us, that it draws one masterfully to a deeper and tender love for Jesus as well. If anyone wants to grow in his love of Jesus, this book is the best at achieving that, for in loving Jesus we come to truly know the depths of His love for us all the more.
