A collection of profound aphorisms and reflections that are the fruit of de Lubac's study over the course of his life on the themes of Christianity. They are rich and thought-provoking gems, spiritual aphorisms, and meditative reflections that express the freshness, and tensions of the spiritual life.
Henri de Lubac, S. J., was considered as one of the most important theologians of the twentieth century. Together with the works of other towering modern theologians (and friends) Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) and Hans Urs von Balthasar, the writings of de Lubac stand out as crucial to twentieth-century Catholicism. Among his other famous books are Catholicism: Christ and the Common Destiny of Man, The Splendor of the Church, The Christian Faith, The Drama of Atheist Humanism, and The Motherhood of the Church.
