Item Description...

Bernard Brady has given us a rare, delightful, and thought-provoking book -- a volume that belongs on the desk or the bed-stand of anyone in search of the rich and varied dimensions of Christian love. Christians are taught that God is love and are commanded to love, their neighbors and their enemies. These truths are not controversial. What is controversial and, indeed, has been controversial throughout the history of Christianity is the "meaning" of this love. This book explores the tradition of Christian reflection on the meaning, and experience of love, loving, and being loved.

Many books have been written about Christian love, but no book has gathered together this kind of primary source material and covered such a wide range of perspectives, allowing the reader to engage directly with the thought and experience of some of the greatest Christian minds on the topic of love. Bernard Brady covers with remarkable clarity the breadth and depth of discussions on Christian love from the Bible to contemporary experience to create this-a survey of how Christians through the ages have understood love.

Beginning of course with the Bible, Brady examines the key writings and thinkers on the nature of Christian love: St. Augustine; mystics such as Bernard of Clairvaux, Hadewich, and Julian of Norwich; the great tradition and literature of courtly love, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, Soren Kierkegaard, and others. In addition, Brady devotes chapters to several 20th century figures whose lives seemingly embodied Christian love: Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Pope John Paul II. Finally, "Christian Love" addresses contemporary deliberations over the meaning of love with an analysis of the modern writings of Martin D'Arcy, Reinhold Niebuhr, Jules Toner, Gustavo Gutierrez, Gene Outka, Margaret Farley, Edward Vacek, and Don Browning. In a synthesizing concluding chapter, Brady offers his own insightful and introspective understanding of the substance of Christian love, suggesting that it is an affective affirmation of another, that it is both responsive and unitive, and that it is steadfast and enduring.

As a beautiful contemplative companion to one's own spiritual understanding, or as a thoughtful and meaningful gift, "Christian Love" is in every sense a treasure to behold, read, and share with those you love.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Amazing  Feb 28, 2005
I actually took Brady's class at the University of St. Thomas that is based around this book, and while not being the most religious person myself, I still found the class and the book to be remarkably wonderful. His writing style as well as style of teaching are very unique, and he offers many insightful ideas that everyone should incorporate into their own lives.
 
Packed With Insights  Dec 28, 2004
Brady has given us an historical tour of biblical and Christian commentary on love. My own favorite section is that on Augustine. Brady also covers that other great of the Catholic tradition, Aquinas. Brady also collects the thoughts of modern, lesser known theologians on the theme of love. The excerpts from theologians William D'Arcy and Edward Vacek are thought-provoking. Reading this book will lead you to ponder the quality of your own friendships and relationships.
