About the Author

Francis de Sales (1567-1622) was born into a privileged family and studied law before abandoning his prospects for the religious life. He was appointed Provost of Geneva, a center of Calvinism. With his quick mind and the persuasive pamphlets that he wrote, he converted thousands to Catholicism, and at thirty-five became Bishop of Geneva. Besides his well-known books, Introduction to the Devout Life and A Treatise on the Love of God, he carried on a vast correspondence. He was canonized in 1665 and proclaimed a Doctor of the Universal Church in 1877.

St. Francis teaches how to conduct all aspects of our lives in a way that orders them toward a closer relationship with God. A must for those seeking to deepen their faith.

I like it, but the chapters are incredibly short. :/

Yeah. Try to make these longer. Including emotions of characters would work.
