Overview


"Let go and let God." This popular phrase captures the essence of Father Jean-Pierre de Caussade's 18th century treatise on trust, Abandonment to Divine Providence.

Do you doubt? Do you suffer? Are you anxious about the trials of life?

Father de Caussade offers the one sure solution to any spiritual difficulty: abandon yourself entirely to God by embracing the duties of your station in life. With wisdom and gentleness he teaches how to practice complete submission to the will of God in every situation, whether we are beginners or seasoned travelers on the way of perfection. True abandonment, he explains, is a trusting, peaceful, and childlike surrender to the guidance of grace.

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.
