 About the Book 

After years of wanting to read this, many starts and restarts, I finally finished it! It turned out not to be so insurmountable as Id made it out to be. Was this because of a mental block or because it was too soon? Loved how he tied Faith to the Intellect, Hope to the Memory and Charity to the Will. Those sections were the best and require careful rereading/outlining. Much to be gained there. Dripping with Scripture, John brought out example after example many which Id never heard or considered in the light which he used them. Knew his reputation as a scholar but was still delighted. Yet, I think he wouldnt like that. Everything he wrote was the finger pointing to the Word, Himself.My only complaint: it ended abruptly ... like he hadnt finished it? How disappointing!
