Format: Hardcover
Richard Rolle was a new figure to me. I enjoy reading early Christian contemplative writers and was first attracted to his work THE FIRE OF LOVE which I found fascinating. Rolle is an excellent writer and even in translation from older English to modern English, much of the magic remains. He also writes very personally and this is most appealing. So I went ahead and got this work I am now reviewing and found some parts nearly as good as the first one I read - FIRE OF LOVE, most definitely works such as the FORM OF LIVING. I think you might be able to find that one online or at least a detailed synopsis. Then I would read THE FIRE OF LOVE next before getting this book. Those are just my opinions at this point. Rolle is certainly a writer who deserves more exposure to modern readers. Be careful to make sure you are getting a modern English version as the older English is very difficult to read unless you are a scholar.
