Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Williams CR<br/><br/>The charm strength and appealing guidance given by the Abbe de Tourville can be summed up as his 'Sanctified Common Sense'- the measure of care, caution,boldness and acceptance signified in 'Behave just as naturally as if you were coming downstairs'- which is a clear picture of Incarnation and the ordinary following of Christ.<br/><br/> Michael Hollings<br/><br/>The Abbe de Tourville is one of those writers, of sound spirituality and sanctified common sense, whose works become minor classics with something to say for all ages. He knows that while the road to God is demanding, something has gone wrong if we feel anxious or fearfulk as we trewad along it. It is a book to be pondered over, rather than to be read at one sitting.<br/><br/> Dom Adhelm Cameron-Brown<br/> Abbot of Prinknash>
