Chiara Lubich, Prophet of Unity, a biography by Maurizio Gentilini
This book looks at Chiara’s life within the historical and sociological context of her time. It uncovers new elements never disclosed, seen from a historian’s perspective. Besides being a historian, Gentilini also possesses a “theological eye” enabling him to perceive the “finger of God” working in history and to identify the threads that he weaves together in this biography.
Paradise, Reflections on Chiara Lubich’s Mystical Journey, a collection of essays edited by Donald W. Mitchell
This is the first time that Chiara’s two talks about Paradise ’49 are published in book form and made available for the public at large. It is accompanied by essays by two dozen authors about that mystical journey and its implications for today’s world. Peter Casarella, in the foreword, writes: “The readers of this volume will thus be astonished at the newness of Chiara’s experience. Chiara even writes about her mystical experience as a revolution: ‘It is necessary to make God be reborn in us, to keep him alive and make him overflow onto others as torrents of Life and resurrect the dead. And keep him alive among us by loving one another…. Then everything is revolutionized: politics and art, school and religion, private life and entertainment. Everything.’”
