Synopses & Reviews
The Rev. Jean Pierre de Caussade was one of the most remarkable spiritual writers of the Society of Jesus in France in the 18th Century. His death took place at Toulouse in 1751-His works have gone through many editions and have been repubHshed, and translated into several foreign languages. The present book gives an English translation of the tenth French Edition of Fr. de Caussade's Abandon a la Providence-Divine edited, to the great benefit of many souls, by Fr, H. Ramiere, S.J. A portion of this remarkable work in English has already appeared in America, but many readers, to whom this precious little book has become a favourite, will welcome a complete translation, especially as what has already appeared in the EngUsh version may be considered as merely the theoretical part, whilst the Letters of Direction which form the greater portion of the present work give the practical part. They answer objections, solve difficulties, and give practical advice. The book thus gains considerably in value and utility.
