Beyond Compare is a remarkable work that offers a commentary on spiritual learning for the 21st century rooted in two classic texts from the Hindu and Christian traditions: the Essence of the Three Auspicious Mysteries by Sri Vedanta Desika and Treatise on the Love of God by St. Francis de Sales. This book highlights the beautiful insights into love by St. Francis de Sales while showing the Hindu India's tradition of loving God, explained to us by Sri Vedanta Desika. Clooney offers a comparative study of these works in which he writes about the process of reading the two works and the impact this approach has on the reader. This deep engagement with these texts offers insight into how we can most fruitfully think about religious pluralism, remaining open yet loyal to our own tradition. Beyond Compare allows readers advance along that path, learning from the wisdom of St. Francis de Sales and Sri Vedanta Desika, deepening our own love and willingness to surrender in love to God.
