One of six titles from SCM Press, each featuring the life and times of a prominent Christian. "Simone Weil may have been a saint, and she was certainly a prophet. A philosopher by training, she was equally at home in mathematics and literature. She made fascinating use of mathematical, mechanical and biological analogies in the expression of her religious thought. Her elucidation of 'affliction' enabled her to give a moving account of the Cross, and her awareness included a strongly mystical element." 121 pages (including Postscript and Index of Names). Rubbing, moderate edgewear, bump to top spine, previous owner's name, moderate general wear.
