THE LITTLE WAY
First Printed: 05-19-2014
It is magnifecent. Bernard Bro searches deep, deeper than any other study I know, and reveals the logic of Thérèse's witness, the inner connections forged not by commonsense but by the Gospel in all its glorious paradox. Unexpected insights abound, a rich representation of humanity has its say, and there is wisdom on every page. -- Paul McPartlan in the Introduction
Since the early days of Christianity, no one has provided a more direct or inspired short-cut to the Gospel than St. Thérèse of Lisieux. She lived on the brink of the nuclear age, and her 'little way' to God, with its simplicity, astounding intuition and trust in God's mercy, points out the road to faith in the modern world.
Thérèse spent nine of her twenty-four year in a Carmelite convent. During that time she had to overcome not only the difficulties of daily life in a community, but also the tragedy of her father's insanity and her own tuberculosis and near loss of faith. She has too often been the victim of pious excess, but Bernard Bro describes her life and her spirituality with humor, realism and understanding. He shows that her 'little way' is within reach of us all: that is why she has so much to teach us today.
BERNARD BRO, OP is a Doctor of Philosophy in France. His distinguished theological career has included the chair of dogmatic theology at Le Saulchoir and editorship of La Vie Spirituelle. He has written many books and articles.
