A classic work that has the potential of benefiting any true believer in God. Written with a humble heart, Francis De Sales outlines the practical points of living/pursuing the devoted life in a way that is able to be followed by the common man. Holy Scripture is interwoven throughout this piece, providing a sure foundation for us all to stand upon. Catholic and Protestant believers alike should find great insight into the the deeper things of walking with Christ, while partaking in this book.

This may very well be titled a true book of life. Mandatory reading, and re-reading, in my opinion.

Part poetic masterpiece, part mystic treatise, The Dark Night of the Soul by 16th century Carmelite monk St. John of the Cross, addresses the feeling of being forgotten by the Presence of the Almighty that every Christian desirous of walking more closely with God must pass through in order to learn to walk by faith and not by sight.
