Overview

For more than 250 years, this simple classic of inspiration has guided readers of all faiths to the open-hearted acceptance of God's will that is the sure path to serenity, happiness, and spiritual peace.

"A spiritual classic of the first order... a book for all those who truly seek God." —Dom David Knowles

"Father de Caussade has a wonderful way of encouraging the doubtful, of nurturing the personal surrender that is so much a part of the development of faith. The book is a mystery of its own — and is definitely not for Christians only." —Rabbi Joshua Chasan

"Abandonment to Divine Providence is a classic perhaps more necessary now than ever before. It's a little book that rightly rejects the spirituality of fear and trembling (and the modern preoccupation with dreary self-absorption) in favor of an abiding trust in God's active benevolence. This is a work one reads again and again, always with gratitude and astonishment." —Donald Spoto, Author of Blue Angel and The Dark Side of Genius

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.
