Anyone ever read her books on the life of Christ? I got them from a friend for an early Christmas present and am really loving the first volume so far. What do you who have read them think?
Love them. Very rich.
They're beautiful! I love the sections on Mary's life, as well as the Passion.
Doesn't appeal to me much, but Bl. Pope Pius IX loved them. That's a good litmus test if you ask me.
I like those thick volumes of Love of Jesus Christ and the Old Testament.  Cool stuff.  Not sure it it's 100% legit, but I'll buy it until I'm corrected by the Almighty Himself on the other side.
I find them interesting. Used to read them when I first came back to the Church. Part of our yearly Lenten meditation is to read the passion part.

Me too as well as On the Passion of Christ by Thomas Kempis. I have never read the whole set though.
