Spiritual Friendship : Aelred of Rievaulx - The Classic Text with a Spiritual Commentary by Dennis Billy Paperback / softback

Edited by Dennis J. Billy

Part of the Classics with Commentary series

Description

The latest offering in the Classics with Commentary series invites readers to enter into one of the great works of the Christian tradition that sees friendship as a key to spiritual growth and true happiness.

This surprisingly modern, twelfth-century classic has long been popular with monks.

Now this new edition opens up the riches of this spiritual masterpiece to a wide audience of contemporary readers who see the spiritual life not as a solitary enterprise, but one intimately connected to relationships.

Written in dialogue form, Aelred of Rievaulx offers wise counsel on many aspects of friendship.

Dennis Billy, C.Ss.R., editor of the innovative Classics with Commentary series, has once again provided readers with an invaluable introduction and background.

The popular translation by M. Eugenia Laker is complemented by Billy's helpful commentary and thoughtful reflection questions for each chapter.
