Reviews

. . . the clear, simple, and unsophisticated summary of Saint Bernard's thought given here is sound for non-specialists, not just for monks and nuns, but for all Christians interested in the life of prayer
Jean Leclercq

This book makes most valuable reading in itself and also throws light on Merton's own development . . . Bernard would have recognized his son
