Sixty years on, Boylan's remarkable spiritual classic is one to which Catholics continually return. In This Tremendous Lover, a Trappist monk speaks clearly and perceptively to the world of priests, religious, or laity still "in the world." Boylan explains God's plan for our happiness, and how we are each called to participate in this divine plan as members of the Mystical Body of Christ. This Tremendous Lover has been called a modern version of Introduction to the Devout Life, the timeless sixteenth-century classic by St. Francis de Sales, and it is one of one hundred works on the Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan. This new edition includes a foreword by Lawrence S. Cunningham, a professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame.

Dom Mary Eugene Boylan, O.C.R. (1904-1964), was an Irish priest, Trappist monk, and spiritual writer. He entered the Cistercian order in 1931 and was ordained in 1937. Drawing from his experience as a confessor, spiritual director, and retreat master, he published This Tremendous Lover in 1946, which was translated into several languages and became an international bestseller.
Dom Boylan lectured extensively in the United States. He taught theology and philosophy at Mount Saint Joseph Abbey in Rosecrea, Ireland, and was elected as its fourth abbot in 1962, where he served until his untimely death in an auto accident in 1964.
