Description
"You are the Beloved of the Divine Lover," writes Cistercian abbot Basil Pennington in the preface to his remarkable study of the Psalms. "You are loved with a love beyond that which human words can express, which song and pen seek in some way to convey or at least hint at. Let go. Let the currents of love invade you. Let your deepest soul rejoice." In the tradition of the Christian mysticism of Bernard of Clairvaux, Gregory the Great, and Ambrose of Milan, Pennington shares his reflections on the Bible's most challenging mystical text, the ancient love poem that is the Song of Songs. Pennington is aided by Jewish artist Phillip Ratner, whose energetic inspirational drawings are filled with rich analogy.

"A paean of reverence for what may be the holiest book in the Hebrew Bible, written by a man who is surely one of the most spiritually gifted teachers of our generation. Through his own poetic ruminations, Father Basil deftly leads us into that mysterious place where romance embraces the sacred."óLawrence Kushner
