Brooks covers a lot of compelling ground, including:
- The difference between “Adam One” and “Adam Two”;
- The effects of love;
- The effects of suffering;
- Our universal longing for transcendence;
- Discovering that St. Augustine, in Brooks’ words, is his “ultimate hero”;
- The walls Christians erect against secular culture;
- How to build effective ramps to secular culture.
It’s classic Brooks, who candidly, winsomely and humbly speaks to the Christian community as a “holy friend,” willing to wound in love by saying what the Church must hear.
