"This has long been my favorite among my books," says the author,"becuase it was the 'place' where I discovered a new set of concepts that helped me to understand what Christianity is all about...We need those weird people called 'saints' to remind us what Christianity is really telling us -- that the 'language' of divine-love-made-human is there, available if we can learn it. Only to hear it we need some kind of dictionary, because the meanings of the words are not by any means obvious. What does 'Christ' mean as my own experience. What is 'sin'? What do 'bread and wine' mean, as the words of a community which claims some kind of divine presence? What does 'sex' mean in that language? What is 'community'? What is 'death,' what is 'life,' and how do you get from one to the other?' "This is an admirable book...a fundamental statement." (Thomas Merton)
