But what is most engaging, and what should garner interest in this volume, is Gerson's honest portrayal of his own inner life. Seen by a modern reader to be at times fair and loving, at times harsh and needlessly austere, and always willing to present his own weaknesses, failures, and needs, Gerson reveals the humanity of his own era in a way which allows us to recognize our own.
