About the Author

Paul Murray is an Irish Dominican and a poet. He works in Rome, Italy, where he teaches the literature of the mystical tradition at the Angelicum University.

Murray's charming book urges readers to make use of Dominican spirituality by drinking the experience of the world while remaining rooted in God's word. For most collections. * Library Journal *
