KIRKUS REVIEW

The meditations in this book are based on the events and theology of Christ's risen life. Appealing to imagination and reason, the author articulates some of the specific ""meanings for the mind and...joys for the heart"" that Easter implies for the prayerful soul. Emphasis is on ""the new life of the risen body....the life of faith, the life of grace given in baptism and renewed in penance, the life of union with Christ in the Eucharist, the life of fervent preparation for heaven, the life of God's people gathered in Christ's mystical body, and the life of the world to come."" The intrinsic value of the considerations offered here in connection with successive events of the risen life, as recorded in the Gospels, cannot be denied, but the manner of presentation is apt to impress some readers as being somewhat cold and unappealing, in spite of obvious attempts at warmth.
