Celace
Interesting and full of information about the Maritains and their dear friends. They did so much for the Church and the people they
knew. usually the intellectuals,. They were instrumental in bringing so many of them to Catholiciism.
One became a saint (Charles Foucaud) and another soon will be (Prince Ghika)
There was one error. Saul Alinsky dedicated his book, Rules for Radicals , not to Maritain but to Satan
Brariel
When I had a chance to grab this book on the Maritains at a discount price,
I jumped to do it. Detailing one of the most amazing spiritual and literary
partnerships of the 20th century, this book does justice to their published
works with complete understanding of their extraordinary religious journey.
In actual fact, the book is a thorough study of the life and work of Jacques Maritain.
Raissa is covered as the partner and inspiration of her husband's life, with her
sister Vera coming in a close second as essential helpmate and housemate to the couple.
Illustrated with photographs that are as incredible as the text, it is highly recommended
for all who are interested in the Church and the early 20th century French Catholic Renaissance.
