Synopses & Reviews
The Workings of the Subtle Heart is a literary work of narrative non-fiction, a funny and intimate piece, of sudden beauty and power. Based upon an awakening into God, the book evokes the spiritual life, and calls the reader to insight of the "subtle heart," and to how the subtle heart perceives reality beneath the apparent reality of the world. In The Workings of the Subtle Heart, William Widmer reveals how this capacity is used in science and in love, in poetry and religion, as the fulminating core of discernment.
