Agape and Bhakti with Bataille and Mark at Loyola and St. Francis
The Mysticism of Reconciliation
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"A work of exquisite poetic exploration of a subject we all wish to master, David's unique method of meditating on love parallels his personal story with Mark's Gospel, with Bataille's writings and even the Bhagavad Gita."
--Sally Jardine, former professor of English, Kansas State University
"In this his fourth book, David Goicoechea again tells the truth as he sees it and lives it. This book is a record of the intensity that marks his unique syncretistic Christianity. This book distills the Gospels, adds to this strains of Hinduism and a Bataillean-Kierkegaardean-Nietzschean quest for grace and joy, all of which results in a very potent cocktail."
--R. Dalvi, Chair and Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, Brock University
