Lamp Post Inc.; ISBN: LAMP-00002
This famous and much loved little treatise, "On Cleaving to God," (De Adhaerendo Deo) has always been attributed to Saint Albert the Great, who lived from about 1200 to 1280, and was one of the most respected theologians of his time.
Lamp Post and the Christian Classics Ethereal Library are proud to present some of the finest Christian literary works of all time — writings that have affected the Church, touched the hearts of its leaders, and helped shape Christianity for two thousand years; timeless books that have endured and are deserving to be included among the Christian Classics.
"I have had the idea of writing something for myself on and about the state of complete and full abstraction from everything and of cleaving freely, confidently, nakedly and firmly to God alone, so as to describe it fully (in so far as it is possible in this abode of exile and pilgrimage), especially since the goal of Christian perfection is the love by which we cleave to God."
— St. Albert the Great, On the highest and supreme perfection of man, in so far as it is possible in this life.
