One of the most unusual and stimulating volumes to appear among Catholic publications in some time, this book brings back to life a blind Vincentian priest of the nineteenth century, of great originality of mind and exquisite charity of soul, and lets him speak his mind in dialogue form on a great number of profound subjects agitating the minds of men in the twentieth century. It might be too much to say that the dialogues in this volume are reminiscent of the Platonic dialogues, but one cannot help thinking of them when he reads this book and cannot fail to note that often the material here is just as stimulating. Altogether, a rare spiritual and intellectual treat. Imprimatur.
