"Each poem is short, spare, distilled. And each one is footnoted, so the reader might begin in enchantment, then trace the poetry to its source. A sure-footed path toward mastering one of the great masters of the last millennia." - Chicago Tribune
"In reading Meister Eckhart's Little Book of the Heart, it again came to mind why I am so drawn to the poetry of Rumi, Hafiz, and Kabir. There is revelation in this book by Burrows and Sweeney. I sincerely feel it will help one look deeper into the eyes of the Christ and know more of God's knowledge and love." --Daniel Ladinsky, international bestselling author of I Heard God Laughing, A Year with Hafiz, Love Poems from God, and other books of poetry
"In the ecstatic spirit of Rumi and Hafiz, Meister Eckhart's words dance and invite the reader into an intimate encounter with the divine. Reading these poems sets the heart ablaze and the spirit soaring." -Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, author of The Artist's Rule: Nurturing Your Creative Soul with Monastic Wisdom
"I think Mark Burrows and Jon Sweeney achieve something quite rare and wonderful here. They make Eckhart clear, concise, and very compelling!" --Richard Rohr, OFM, bestselling author of Falling Upward, Breathing Under Water, and many other books
"If for many of us a dose of Meister Eckhart is like a morning pot of coffee, this concentrated and poetic reduction is like a book full of double espresso shots -- each is about as much as you can take in and metabolize in a day." --Brother Paul Quenon, Abbey of Gethsemani, author of Unquiet Vigil

in saving their lives than getting smarter. These translations in verse exceed any strict calculus. The
thoughtful renderings clearly pierce the translators' own spirits in the effort to revitalize a medieval figure,
whom we do well to hold dear. The book is as comfortable on a nightstand as on a coffee table. I've placed
the book in random public spaces to see into whose hearts the wild sunflowers on the cover will bloom.
