Aidan Nichols is after the heart of Israel in this illuminating exposition of the Old Testament. To quote Hans Urs von Balthasar, the Church 'does not want its praise of God to derive simply and solely from the written word, but from the mind and heart of the Jews at prayer, from those who first formed the words, so that it can embrace them in its living tradition.' Taking his title from a verse in Song of Songs ('You are beautiful as Tirzah, my love, lovely, like Jerusalem'), Nichols first gives an incisive overview of the Old Testament (the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings) followed by two sections that serve to unify the two Testaments-God's patterns of revelation and the manner of His self-manifestation. Nichols concludes with an explanation of typological interpretation and concrete examples (including Augustine, Gregory the Great, Origen, and Aquinas). Written by a Catholic primarily for Catholics, Lovely, Like Jerusalem is nonetheless a widely appealing work of both spiritual and theological means-apparent in Nichols' ability to elucidate the beauty of the relationship between Old and New. 279 pp.
