My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wonderful collection of five of Llull’s most important work. Bonner’s translations are concise and fluid, very helpful. His introductory remarks to each book fill in historical and biographical information, so you end up with a bio of Llull in addition to his actual writings.
The most engaging part for me was the Book of the Gentile, which is the deployment of his philosophical framework for the sake of establishing the logical necessity of the Christian faith. His insights regarding Islam are appreciated.
Sadly missing are his ‘Names of God‘.
Highly recommended for anyone wanting to read Llull in English for the first time.
