The Family that Overtook Christ
Category : History & BiographiesISBN No :9781933871806
This book is the fascinating account of a family that took seriously the challenge to follow Christ… and to overtake Him. With warmth and realism, Venerable Tescelin, Blesseds Alice, Guy, Gerard, Humbeline, Andrew, Bartholomew, Nivard and St. Bernard step off these pages with the engaging naturalness that attracts imitation. Here is a book that makes centuries disappear, as each member of this unique family becomes an inspiration in our own quest of overtaking Christ. One of the Biggest figures in this book is Bernard of Clairvaux. He was called the man of his age, the voice of his century. His influence towered above that of his contemporaries, and his sanctity moved God Himself. Men flocked to him?—some in wonder, others in curiosity, but all drawn by the magnetism of his spiritual giant hood. Bernard —who or what fashioned him to be suitable for his role of counseling Popes, healing schisms, battling errors and filling the world with holy religious and profound spiritual doctrine? Undoubtedly, Bernard is the product of God's grace. But it is hard to say whether this grace is more evident in Bernard himself or in the extraordinary family in which God chose to situate this dynamic personality.
He was called the man of his age, the voice of his century. His influence towered above that of his contemporaries, and his sanctity moved God himself.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is seriously thinking of following Christ or at least has some love for Him, but maybe confused, at the cross roads or just wondering what is the next step to take. The passionate love of Bernard and his whole family for Christ cannot but inspire the reader to make those demanding choices to follow Christ! May our Lord bless everyone who reads this book. Once again many thanks to our good Lord for his amazing vocation in the family of Bernard of Clairvaux!
