“My Love, Love in its incorruptible essence, Love without limits, is never entirely absent. God is never absent. At times such Love seems barely to exist, yes. It can be undetectable, covered by hatred, by all sorts of perversions, or by a layer of instinctive brutality. Yet I still work through it. No matter how deformed love may be, I can make it rise to the level of a conscious and total gift. Love has a great many different aspects, it’s true. But there is only one Love."

God revealed himself to Moses on Mount Horeb as a fire which burns but does not consume. Lev Gillet, in this book, tells us that Christ is the fullest manifestation of the God who revealed himself to Moses in the burning bush. Christ shows us how to emulate the manner in which he lived - a way that reveals "the God of Limitless Love", the love which burns but does not consume. Further, Gillet discloses the meaning of Psalm 23 - the "Shepherd Psalm" - as a mirror in which we see reflected the whole of the Christian life and a lesson in the attitude which we are called to bring to God in our prayer. Lev Gillet is a monk of the Orthodox Church and a popular author of several books on spirituality.
