Sometimes, in a rare moment, a person falls in love with an idea and pursues it until the moment of their death. It may the the composition of music, as it was with Mozart, or it may be cooking a lovely French dinner, as it was with Julia Child. Such fallings in love have brought us Einstein, Rachel Carson, Beethoven, Van Gogh, Toni Morrison, Terese of LIsieux, Peter Claver and Mother Teresa. In A Journal of Love we meet another great figure of history whose love shaped his entire life: the Apostle John. What fired his life was his profound love for the charismatic rabbi who became simultaneously friend and Word, and who was found to be Messiah, Redeemer, and God-among-us: Jesus of Nazareth. A Journal of Love is meant to be an encounter, a felt sense of what it must have been- and can be now - to live that love. All those seeking that encounter will find a way through these profound, poetic meditations.
