Morton Kelsey is Professor Emeritus at the University of Notre Dame and an Episcopal priest. His book The Other Side of Silence is a classic on the use of imagination in the spiritual life. Set Your Hearts on the Greatest Gift is a heartfelt and experiential exploration of the author's feelings about agape.

Kelsey presents his spiritual takes on I Corinthians 13, the story of the Good Samaritan, and the Parable of the Prodigal Son. He writes movingly about his slow learnings in the art of love during his son's battle with death. The best section in the book revolves around his own nighttime talks with God.
