''With this erudite book, R. J. Snell--one of the young bright lights of natural law thinkers--offers a unique perspective on a central question: if the natural law is accessible to everyone, how do we come to know it? Snell's provocative answer is that learning moral truth requires interiority, transcendence, and conversion. Though I didn't agree with every argument on offer, I couldn't help being instructed and challenged. The book will do the same for any interested reader.''
--Ryan T. Anderson, William E. Simon Fellow at The Heritage Foundation and coauthor of What Is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense
''Some books succeed by providing the reader with a thorough and accessible overview of a crucial debate. Other books advance those debates with provocative arguments of their own. Rare is the book that does both with excellence, and by that measure R. J. Snell's The Perspective of Love is rare indeed. Proponents, critics, and students of 'natural law' will find this an indispensable book.''
--Micah J. Watson, associate professor, Union University --Wipf and Stock Publishers
