God Centered!

All of my Protestant brothers and sisters, relax!!! This is just about the most God centered book that I have ever read (apart from Brother Lawerence and Michael Molinos). I don't know all the ins and outs of this brothers Theology, but I do know that what he says in this book is solid. I love this book, and I am a staunch Calvinist! We Christians need a book like this just as much as we need Calvin's Institutes or Luther's Bondage Of The Will. Do you believe that we must be dead to self and completely given over to the will of God through Christ our Lord? If your answer is a resounding yes, then this book is for you. If not, move on quickly to something watered down I guess-though I would heartily exhort against it. Just being playful! God bless you in your reading and by God's grace, applying of this book.

A True Treasure of a Book

I have many wonderful and treasured volumes in my home, and were I to be forced to give up all but two, I would choose this book to be the sole companion to my Bible. This man, who died nearly 300 years ago, seems to have truly grasped who God is, and perhaps more importantly, who He isn't. Comprised of a collection of short letters sent to various individuals for spiritual encouragement, counsel, and sometimes reproof, these pages will help readers with a seeking heart to let go of their misconceptions about God, and about what He expects of us. In other words, through these pages many will learn that God is not nearly so concerned with some things that we thought were quite critical, and at the same time, considerably more concerned about other things that perhaps we have given too little attention to. The bottom line is that it sounds a clarion call that will stir your soul to truly let God take full control of your life for His glory... a call that you will never be able to get away from.By the way, while Fenelon was a Catholic, I am a fundamentalist Protestant and I can assure you that you will find that this difference does not get in the way at all, as it might with other writers. I have never heard anything but praise for this book from others of my faith who I have shared this book with.

Death of self-love

Fenelon had an amazing mind and heart for God which he used to influence many of the leaders of his day. This book has inspired me to view the trials of life as the furnace needed to bring me to the end of my sinful self and accept my position as "alive in CHRIST". It is a must read for anyone who is serious about growing spiritually and intellectually.

Thought provoking devotional

This is one of the very best devotionals ever written, though it actually consists of letters Fenelon wrote. The issues he addresses still affect us all today, and his gentle but unflinching advice always causes me to examine my own heart. A wonderful book.
