TOWARD THE SUMMIT

A translation of three works by the French Dominican, Father Bruckberger, this volume contains three closely related personal reflections pertaining to man as a religious being. G in Unum Deum is a colloquy on the question of the existence of God, which by way of proof, effectively combines an existential and traditional approach. Returning to God is a short, practical treatise on prayer and the development of the spiritual life. The Role of the Saint in Human Society, is a philosophico-theological consideration of the nature of sanctity and the purpose of devotion to the saints within the Church. Pointed contrasts are drawn here between the saint and the hero on the one hand and the saint and the religious devotes on the other. Each of the three reflections contains a great deal of speculative and practical wisdom, is direct and personal in tone, and is filled with memorable phrases and enlightening analogies. Directed both to those of no religion whatever and to those whose religion has become idolatrous, this is a book which can profitably be read by all thoughtful persons.
