KIRKUS REVIEW

This discourse on the human and divine solidarities of love should contribute to the uplifting of the level of appreciation of a large segment of the audience that normally gets spiritual reading of an emotional sort. Though literate in approach, unfortunately the efforts to apply the teaching of the two commandments -- of loving God and one's neighbor -- are couched in abstractions which divorce the recommendations of the knowledgeable author from reality. It is, nevertheless, better than the usual book in this category. Father McGarrigle does cite examples to make his suggestions concrete, but by making them general they lose value for the individual. What the author says is pertinent but it is phrased in language of generalities. Even so the book is a level above the spiritual reading too frequently offered Catholics by publishers who are producing books years behind their audience's capacious wants and needs.
