Author(s): Mario I. Aguilar
"* 'Mario Aguilar skilfully, elegantly, and clearly presents the life and thought of some of the major spiritual forces of our time as a starting point for his own compelling reflections on the relationship between contemplation and politics... We need more books like this one.' Professor Ivan Petrella, University of Miami"
Professor Mario I. Aguilar is Director of the Centre for the Study of Religion and Politics at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, having served previously as Dean of the Faculty of Divinity.
