The Trappist author, Father Raymond, whose prolific pen has produced such widely read books as The Man Who Got Even With God, God Goes To Murderer's Row, You and God, and A Woman and the Way again exercises his ebullient style in an attempt to discuss the doctrine of doing God's Will- for a popular audience. Unfortunately, the book reads like an overly long sermon in which the author goes on and on in abstractions and quotations from the saints and other spiritual writers. He seldom gets down to the practical level of telling men and women living in the Sixties how the doctrine can really be applied to their everyday less-than-heroic lives. Father Raymond's wide following will undoubtedly find this voluminous book an excellent source of material for meditation. Father Raymond took on a difficult and important topic in Now which is good Father Raymond, but will hardly satisfy any but his regular readers.
