Solange Hertz has established herself as an astute contemporary student of lay spirituality and as a writer whose freshness and frankly human approach have merited high praise from readers in all walks of like. In Come Down, Zacchaeus, she turns her skill to the interpretation of Scripture in an attempt to demonstrate that it is not just instructive; it is vitally related to our everyday lives.
An established writer before the Second Vatican Council, Solange Hertz wrote for most Catholic periodicals and had five books to her credit, one a selection of the Catholic Literary Foundation. When she refused to adjust her theology to the new “Spirit of Vatican II,” her manuscripts almost overnight became unacceptable to her former editors. After a series of articles on feminine spirituality for the old Triumph magazine, she continued speaking for tradition by successfully producing The Thought of Their Heart and Sin Revisited on her own.
This book is great. It was a pleasure to read- BUT and a big BUT! This book shouldn’t be read by any males who do not have control of their passions. It deals with the “weird” parts of the Bible in 2-3 chapters. I felt rather scrupulous after reading it. Otherwise, a wonderful book. 5 stars.
