St. Bernard, Pray for Us!
The Steps of Humility and Pride
The son of burgundian nobility, Bernard admitted after years of struggle that humility remained for him the most elusive of the virtues. Yet the uncompromising vehemence of his love for God made him strive for what monastic tradition taught is indispensable to anyone hoping to share God’s perfect love.
On Loving God with an Analytical Commentary
Perhaps Bernard’s most delightful tract, On Loving God posits that everything good in human persons is an expression of God’s love and by love the person may participate in the being of the triune God. In a new analytic commentary, Stiegman examines Bernard’s language, logic, and theology, demonstrating the vital importance of reading medieval authors on their own terms, without superimposing categories developed by later generations.
On Grace & Free Choice
Bernard ponders a question dear to early Scholasticism and the Reformation: How far can the fallen human person cooperate in salvation?
Sermons for Lent and the Easter Season
This volume contains Saint Bernard’s sermons for the liturgical seasons of Lent and Easter. Included are sermons for the Purification, Septuagesima, the feast of Saint Benedict, and the feast of the Annunciation, all of which are interpreted by Bernard in light of the paschal mystery.

As he reflects on the wonder of the Incarnation, he reminds Christians still today that Christmas celebrates the awesome condescension of God-with-us, not a commercial carnival.
The Parables & The Sentences
For over forty years Bernard of Clairvaux composed works of theology and spiritual reflection. He became the counselor of kings, nobles, popes, and scholars. He advocated a strong, reformed papacy and was the spiritual leader of the early twelfth-century European Church. Often overlooked, these short works by Bernard may well give readers their truest insight into the saint’s sermons as his monks heard them. The Parables explore the spiritual meaning of Scripture directly and dramatically. The ...
Sermons on Conversion: On Conversion, a Sermon to Clerics and Lenten Sermons on the Psalm ‘He Who Dwells’
The burgundian reformer abbot draws a picture of the perfect frontier bishop, and holds him up as a model for bishops everywhere. Conversion is used here not in the modern sense of transferring from on ecclesiastical body to another, but in the patristic and monastic sense of metanoia, turning one’s entire being wholly to God.
