Description

A collection of five inspiring essays by three closely linked mystical thinkers of the seventeenth century—François Fénelon, Madame Jeanne Guyon, and Père Lacombe—whose focus on the availability of intimacy with God made them scandalous in their day.
“Christian Counsel” and “Spiritual Letters,” by Archbishop Fénelon, offer wise advice on how to find the keys to true devotion and peace.
“Method of Prayer” and “On the Way to God,” by Fénelon’s close friend, Madame Guyon, demonstrate the critical importance of constant prayer.
