Dr. Bruce Tallman recently joined me via Zoom to discuss his conversion to the Catholic church, his spiritual direction practice, and his new book titled “God’s Ecstatic Love: Transform Your Life With A Spiritual Masterpiece”. In this interview we discuss what led him to the Catholic church, what spiritual direction is and how the Holy Spirit led him to it, and the work of St. Francis de Sales that led to his newest release.
About God’s Ecstatic Love (Taken From The Book Description)
Jesus of Nazareth said the first and greatest commandment is: “Love God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength.” Francis de Sales, bishop, doctor, saint, and mystic, published Treatise on the Love of God in 1616. Scholars consider it to be one of the classics of Christian literature, on the level of The Cloud of Unknowing, The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis, and The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola. Yet, most people have never heard of it.
Dr. Bruce Tallman’s new book God’s Ecstatic Love takes de Sales’ spiritual masterpiece and updates it in a way that makes sense to 21st century minds. Packed full of key quotes from scripture and the original Treatise, the goal of God’s Ecstatic Love is to enable believers to master the most important life-skill of all: a passionate and intelligent life-transforming love of God.
