On the Shelves – The Rev Douglas Dales

The Rev. Douglas Dales (CR 1984-2012) published three studies of St Bonaventure. Bonaventure lived in the thirteenth century and was a leader of the Franciscans a theologian and spiritual teacher.

Rev. Dales said, “You can learn a great deal about Christianity from his writings and these two books are designed to make what he thought readily accessible. I commend Bonaventure to anyone interested in how Christianity addresses the nature of truth and reality. I have gained a great deal from studying him since leaving my work at MC to serve as a parish priest in the Oxford diocese.”

Divine Remaking: St Bonaventure and the Gospel of Luke and Way Back To God: The Spiritual Theology of Saint Bonaventure are available in paperback from James Clarke & Co, Cambridge. There is a third study forthcoming which will be called Truth & Reality: the Wisdom of St Bonaventure.
