'Sit back, relax and drink in this book: you are in the hands of an enthusiast!...This is a book written in simple English, with not too many words on the page, with succinct and interesting footnotes, with ubheadings that help you to spot the bog ideas and argument along the way. ...I can't recall reading as lucid accont of the balance between action and contemplation anywhere as in the section The World Within God's Hand in the first chapter. What a joy, too, to read some genuinely exuberant writing on the importance of happiness for Dominicans.' The Pastoral Review, Vol 2, Isssue 5--Sanford Lakoff "Pastoral Review "
