L on Bloy: A Study in Impatience is neither criticism nor canonization. Instead, Albert B guin simply presents the person and the preacher of the "Pilgrim of the Absolute," a man with brilliant insights into the world as it could be and terrible impatience with the world as it was. Bloy's writings shed a tremendous, at times blinding, light upon the central mysteries of human existence. Readers who have encountered Bloy in his novels or in his diary (The Pilgrim of the Absolute) will find in B guin a worthy guide in the journey to understanding--and respecting--one of the most fascinating and difficult minds of our age.

L on Bloy was a prophet, living and suffering alongside those whom he sought to save by his words. Like a prophet, he strove to bring the word of God to the people; and like a prophet, he was impatient to see the seeds of those words take root and bear fruit that would last.
