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

I have recommended it to many women as a tool to deepen their reading of the Devout Life.
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.
