With The Subversive Simone Weil: A Life in Five Ideas, the author has given (us) mystical wonderers a great feast. I don't want to get in trouble, but I'm tempted to give a rating of "8-Stars."

Probably around 1996, shortly after my bout with cancer, I ran across the name of Simone Weil for the first time. It took me a little while to figure out she was a she (not a he) and to figure out how to pronounce her last name. In the three decades since, I've grown in my interest towards her for any (many) number of reasons: our mutual interest in inner sculpting, our tendency to be somewhat "maladroit" in common, everyday affairs, and our fixation on the "second great commandment."

I don't know how much Tolstoy influenced her (if at all), but many of her ideas parallel his later-life injunctions: the import of not lying, the necessity of not closing one's eyes to the suffering of others, and the preeminence of feeding starving human beings.

Zaretsky didn't delve into Weil's sex life, which is maybe appropriate (even if the topic can have a pretty substantive effect on how some people's lives and ideas progress). He did provide strong descriptions of Weil's thoughts on "seeing" the Kingdom of Good (or God), her reluctance to convert to the Catholic Church, and her seriousness (by turning away from childish things at age 25). She decided, as have I, that "a life worth living" is a life filled with solving life's problems generally and concretely (and not only the problems in one's own life).

Robert Zaretsky is a liberal arts professor at the University of Houston and has authored a few books on Camus, including Victories Never Last (2022). If you like The Subversive Simone Weil, some other relevant titles would include No Compromise (1989), Heaven Is Under Our Feet (1991), Purity of Heart Is to Will One Thing, The Republic (Plato), and What Then Must We Do? (Tolstoy).

" In Luther the Expositor Jaroslav Pelikan provides the reader and student with some to the tools that are needed for a proper appreciation of Luther's exegetical writings. This companion volume shows conclusively that " in his exegesis - as in his doctrine, piety, and ethic - the Reformer" was "a son of the church" and "a witness to the Word of God revealed in Jesus Christ and documented in the Sacred Scriptures."
