Waiting For God Overview

This short, dense work is comprised of two parts: letter correspondence from the author, Simone Weil, to her mentor and confidant, Reverend Father Perrin, and an anthology of Weil’s most significant theological essays. The work chronicles Weil’s own spiritual autobiography and intellectual development, outlines her difficult and tortured relationship with the Catholic Church as an institution, and delves into some of the major themes characteristic of her theology as a whole, namely, love of God, neighbor, and the world; absence; grace; affliction; and attention. The book was published posthumously and is meant to serve as a representative collection of her thought.
