Wrestling with God : An Introduction to Simone Weil
If you haven't read the sometimes exasperating, often unsettling, but entirely unforgettable French thinker Simone Weil (1909-1943), this handsomely produced booklet in the Trinity Forum Readings series would serve you well. It combines brief selections from her writings with a helpful introductory essay by Alonzo L. McDonald. And I expect it will leave you wanting to read more. The booklet would also make a good gift for a student or a friend who is herself wrestling with God. Driscoll and Breshears bravely follow Christ in his descent to hell to preach to those who are held captive by sin and death.
