Although written in the early 17th century, this book is extremely easy to read and digest. The short chapters come across as a series of homilies, written for the common man to easily understand. Saint Francis de Sales’ writing style is filled with compassion and love, encouragement and hope; hope that we too, can live a devout life! This book has always been on my recommended reading list for anyone who wants to learn more about virtue. I use this book as my “go-to” guide when seeking advice.
I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a closer union with God in their day to day life.
