Endorsements & Reviews-

"Harak's work, particularly on Aquinas, is absolutely stunning. He is able to write about Aquinas on the passions making that text alive in a way that no one else has been able to do. His work is not only scholarly but it is lively and passionate. He obviously has integrated this material so deeply into his own consciousness it simply pours out in an imaginative retelling that compels the reader to think that we really are a part of God's love"

Stanley Hauerwas, Professor of Christian Ethics, The Divinity School at Duke University


"Harak's brilliant work will transform your thinking about the passions. His pilgrimage through modern psychology, Aquinas, Loyola, and Jesus' passionate way of nonviolence reveals the profound hope of our passions - that within within them is our passion for God, drawn to God's compassion for us."

James W. Douglass, author of The Nonviolent Coming of God


"Women rejoice! Leaving dualism in the dust, Harak brings us to the awareness that knowing bodies and feeling minds are what move us to justice."

Judith W. Kay, Professor of Theological Ethics, University of Puget Sound


"The science is basic and fine. And I'll tell you something else: I couldn't put it down."

Anthony Serianni, Professor of Biology, University of Notre Dame
