Publisher's Summary

Jean Pierre de Caussade's accounts in this work present the case that the present moment is a sacrament from God and that self-abandonment to it, and its needs, is a holy state. In the theological climate of France at the time, this belief was considered close to Quietist heresy. In fact, because of this fear, the work was kept unpublished until 1861. Abandoning yourself to divine providence is an example of excellent Christian work which will help the listener gain a deeper understanding of God and his teachings.

Best book i've ever read

This book is simply amazing and has taught me how God is present in all things. Good, mundane, difficult, ect God is always present wanting to be with us. We simply need to acknowledge his presence and trust. What an inspiring and impactful book. I found myself pausing the audiobook all the time to reflect on what was just said. For such a deep book, the narrator reads it rather fast. Some may like that but I prefer a little more pausing. Its like drinking a fine wine quickly... I would prefer to have more time to taste and savour it.
