Simone Weil, the French Jewish writer, drawn to the Church, was born in 1909 and died in 1943. Her influence has been enormous and she is frequently quoted and referred to. There is something particularly attractive about Simone Weil in this age when people are consumed with doubt and uncertainty. Weil lived out her belief. She worked as a mechanic in the Renault factory in Paris. She had an ardent compassion for the unfortunate, a great desire for the truth, and an eagerness to search out the will of God. This clear, lucid exposition of her life and work show how Weil is truly a prophet for our age and an indispensable source of encouragement to all those who prowl at the frontiers of religion, both within and without.
