This book is about the life of prayer and personal reform and renewal. It fits squarely into the tradition of the "great masters" of the spiritual life as well as to the line of contemporary modern writers on spirituality like Benedict Groeschel, Peter Kreeft and Thomas Dubay.
This is a work of particular relevance in that it confronts modern culture with the tough-minded, deeply authentic challenge of spiritual combat.
In introducing Scupoli's main points, Father Robinson has retained the original book's appeal to the ordinary Catholic reader through a conversational style, short chapters, and familiar examples from everyday life. In covering the basic difficulties of daily prayer and of obstacles to living the virtues, Scupoli and Robinson test the mettle of Catholics by calling them to live an interior life for and with God.
