Descripción del producto


Following in the successful path blazed in his treatment of Julian of Norwich, as well as in The Complete Imitation of Christ, Fr. John-Julian graces us with another of his exceptional writings in The Complete Introduction to the Devout Life. His introduction, translation and commentary of Francis de Sales classic text works on so many levels. Written with careful scholarship balanced with a prayerful practicality, John-Julian s treatment serves both the scholar of Christian spirituality as much as it resources the person seeking a deeper life in Christ. Not unlike de Sales own text, though written for the common Christian, its profound depths are available for those who desire to dive deeper into its riches. A tour de force treatment of an enduring classic, it is bound to become a classic in its own right --The Rev. Dr. Todd E. Johnson, Theological Director of the Brehm Center for Worship, Theology and the Arts, Fuller Theological Seminary

'Fr. John Julian s new translation and commentary joins with his previous books to create a library of Christian classics of inestimable value to anyone seriously interested in Christian spirituality. --The Rev. Dr. Arnold Klukas, Professor of Liturgics and Ascetical Theology, Nashotah House Theological Seminary

Reseña del editor

Praised by a wide-ranging group of enthusiasts, from the novelist Anne Rice to the Catholic theologian Dr. Michael Downey, Fr. John-Julian's powerful translations and significant annotations of the classics are inspiring and challenging.

HASH(0x9c4cc60c) de un máximo de 5 estrellas how-to manual on the devout life 18 de septiembre de 2013
Por Michelle Jackson - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
This is the first time I have ever read St Francis de Sales, and I am captivated by his practical approach to the devout life. I have not finished it, and in fact am reading very slowly, because each chapter is a wonderful, wisdom filled teaching on how to examine one's soul, and how to grow in one's relationship to God. I have read Father John-Julian's other translations and have enjoyed each one. His footnotes sit across the page, which make reference easy and painless. His additional essays on the author and surrounding history are fascinating. This volume is full of good, practical advice that is timeless.

One of the best books I ever bought. This is my second copy of the Devout Life and I find the notes and comments extremely useful. This is one of those books that you will refer to over and over.

HASH(0x9c4ccea0) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Practicing a Devout Life 18 de octubre de 2013
Por Lois Sibley - Publicado en

This is the story of St. Francis de Sales, with his advice on how to improve one's personal spiritual life. He became the Roman Catholic Bishop of Geneva in 1602, and he began writing this book in 1609, continuing to revise through five editions, with its final publication in 1619.
Paraclete Press includes it in its series called Giants. More than 400 pages, it is a hefty book and a fascinating read. It is translated by and includes commentary from Fr. John Julian, OJN (Order of Julian of Norwich). Fr. Julian says that from its first publication, The Complete Introduction.... was one of the five most popular books at that time on "serious Christian spiritual development."
Francis was a "very hands-on bishop" and he "highly valued personal contact with his people," writes Fr. Julian. Often sought after for answers to spiritual questions, Francis sometimes sent questioners a written answer to their questions. These were saved in "collections" and used again and again. Some of these Q and A materials are now part of Francis's several books.
Fr. Julian's translation and commentary have gracefully helped us to take it all in and think about using Francis's book for our own spiritual growth.
