Editorial Reviews

Review

Peter Kreeft is like C. S. Lewis. He makes the most difficult and abstract of problems accessible to the general reader. Here he grapples with the good, the true and the beautiful, translating transcendental reality into a language that the ordinary reader can grasp. He shows us joy and makes it enjoyable.
 
--Joseph Pearce, noted author of numerous essays, articles, and books including
Further Up and Further In: Understanding Narnia and a forthcoming biography of Benedict XVI.
 

With his characteristic clarity and wit, Prof. Kreeft's
Wisdom of the Heart rediscovers what moral theologians always acknowledge but rarely emphasize: well-ordered emotions give power to our quest for virtue. Kreeft shows the heart to be much more than merely the emotions; it is also key to conscience, the will, intuitive understanding, and personal identity. Eschewing false sentimentalism, Kreeft guides the reader to discover the innermost desires of the heart and then speeds him on the path to fulfill them in goodness, truth, and beauty. Concrete and nuanced, engaging and learned, Kreeft's latest tour-de-force synthesizes thousands of years of philosophical reflection while making it feel like having a friendly conversation. Full of vivid examples drawn from poetry and literature, it is a delight to read for both the head and the heart.
 
-Edmund Lazzari, Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at Mount Saint Mary's University, Former FOCUS Missionary
