Faith, according to Giussani is to "recognize a Presence that is certain." How often do we take our faith for granted? How often do we take hope, and love for granted? This book has been amazing for me as I have read through it and connected with the heart of Giussani in his talks to the "Memores Domini" novices. I have felt on these pages the advise of a father who loves me (to quote St. Benedict in his Rule).
I hope others also discover the richness of this book, and answer for themselves "Is it Possible to Live This Way?" Is it possible to be guided by a hope that does not disappoint? (Romans 5:5)
Bottom line: if you are looking to learn more about Giussani's thinking and work, and are not buying this book because you have to for a study group, etc., look at The Religious Sense or The Risk of Education or one of his other more popular works.
Finally, I definitely pray that CL exercise some more prudence in the future about which writings or talks of Fr. Giussani are truly worthy of book form. Given that Fr. Giussani is deceased, sooner or later CL will run out of material of his to study.Read more ›
Also, I have to agree with the reviewer "user" who made comments about the texts being used in School of Community.
This is not a negative judgment overall on the book rather I see how beautiful this work was at times and think it suffers from some issues that prevent it from being a home run.
