Synopsis:

One of Augustine's earliest prayers after his conversion was a prayer to understand himself and to discover God. He came to realize that al of us follow more or less the same path of discovery, a path that begins in darkness and moves toward wisdom. Although few achieve the perfection of wisdom, we can be certain that we are showing our love for God by reaching out in love to our fellow human beings. In Let Me Know You" Father Burt offers a rare reflection on the seven steps in Augustine's journey towards the Vision of God and suggests that they are also the stages we must go through in order to finally *see - the God of love for ourselves.

Chapters are *Darkness, - *Pious Listening, - *Knowledge: The Path out of Darkness, - *Fortitude, - *Love, - *The Need for Purification, - and *Loving a Still Hidden God. -

Donald X. Burt, OSA, PhD, professor emeritus of philosophy at Villanova University, has published widely on the philosophy of St. Augustine. His most recent books include *Let Me Know Myself . . ., - The Pilgrim God, and The River: Augustinian Reflections On a Flowing Life, published by Liturgical Press.

"

Book Description Liturgical Press, United States, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. One of Augustine s earliest prayers after his conversion was a prayer to understand himself and to discover God. He came to realize that all of us follow more or less the same path of discovery, a path that begins in darkness and moves toward wisdom. Although few achieve the perfection of wisdom, we can be certain that we are showing our love for God by reaching out in love to our fellow human beings. In Let Me Know You Father Burt offers a rare reflection on the seven steps in Augustine s journey towards the vision of God and suggests that they are also the stages we must go through in order to finally see the God of love for ourselves. Father Burt does not simply present Augustine s wisdom for the journey of faith. He enters the journey with Augustine and invites his readers to join him. What results is thoughtful, prayerful, insightful, sometimes even humorous, but always challenging wisdom for our own journey of faith. Through the pen of Fr. Burt an ancient St. Augustine speaks to the serious searcher lurking within the modern human heart. Thomas Martin, O.S.A.,Theology Department, Villanova University With humor, humility, warmth and a lyricism reminiscent of the Song of Songs, Don Burt breathes abundant, new life into classical categories of Christian spirituality. He mines the works of St. Augustine, including the fifth century bishop s many sermons, with an ease that belies the long and careful scholarship necessary for such a task. Father Burt applies his own considerable philosophical mind and opens his vast and vulnerable heart to entice the reader to join him, and Augustine, in a lifelong search for God. Joseph T. Kelley, Director, Center for Augustinian Study and Legacy, Merrimack College. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780814629574
