Caussade's counsel, which promises comfort and holiness to every soul with good will, has guided generations of seekers to spiritual peace. Some of his advice is particularly relevant to beginners; other teachings are geared to those possessing a more advanced degree of spirituality.

This book is second only to the Bible in importance for Christians and any other believers in God.

This is the ONLY book of it's kind that I will EVER read again. You must read each sentance carefully sometimes 2 or 3 times to get the simple, direct message. You must not have any distractions while reading this. Great to go back to for a refresher. It is the most complete, wonderful book I've ever read. Full of hope and joy and moral support. God never looked so good!!

I have found this to be the most profound and valuable guide to living the spiritual life. It packages a wealth of wisdom in a short volume, with warmth and good humour. It is worth reading several time a year, and each reading will provide new insights.
