Item Description...
Overview
Sixty years on, Boylan's remarkable spiritual classic is one to which Catholics continually return. In This Tremendous Lover, a Trappist monk speaks clearly and perceptively to the world of priests, religious, or laity still "in the world." Boylan explains God's plan for our happiness, and how we are each called to participate in this divine plan as members of the Mystical Body of Christ. This book has been called a modern version of Introduction to the Devout Life, the timeless 16th century classic by St. Francis de Sales, and it is one of 100 works on the Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan. This new edition includes a foreword by Lawrence S. Cunningham, a professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame.

More About M. Eugene Boylan

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Dom Eugene Boylan, O.C.R., was an Irish-born Trappist monk and writer who was born in 1904 and died in 1964. Ordained a priest in 1937, he began writing on spiritual topics, and in the 1940s he published two books, This Tremendous Lover and Difficulties in Mental Prayer, which became international bestsellers and were translated into many languages. In the late 1950s he undertook an extensive lecture tour of the United States ("This is the best retreat we ever had at Gethsemani," commented Thomas Merton after Boylan's visit there), and in 1962 he was elected the fourth abbot of Mount St. Joseph Abbey in Roscrea, Ireland. Two years later he died in an automobile accident.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Simply Outstanding!  Feb 20, 2000
If you're a Catholic looking for an intelligent and easy-to-read book on how to deepen your appreciation for your faith and for the Church, this is it! Boylan speaks in very eloquent, practical language and convinces you at the end that you just "gotta have" a relationship with this tremendous lover, Jesus the Christ. A priceless classic!

Book every serious modern Christian needs to read.  Dec 17, 1998
This book clearly teaches the concept of the mystical body of Christ as proposed by St. Paul in the scriptures. This book had a great impact on my life as a Christ. It clearly explains what the Christian life is about and how all Christians are interrelated to one another in the Body of Christ. A must read for every serious Christian.
 
A Timeless "Introduction to the Devout Life."  Oct 30, 1998
I wondered if any modern writer had ever penned a handbook for pursuing a life with Christ in the Catholic Church, until I found this book. Though written by a Trappist Monk around 1945, "This Tremendous Lover" speaks directly to every man and woman who struggles to find room for God amid a hectic life and in a culture often at odds with God's values. From prayer to suffering to the sacraments to marriage to work, "This Tremendous Lover" shows the reader the way to deeper union with Christ, and ultimately to salvation. This is truly a timeless "Introduction to the Devout Life."
