Publisher writes

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.

Author Information

St. Francis De Sales, (translated by Father John-Julian, O.J.N.)

Father John-Julian, OJN is the founder of the Episcopal contemplative monastic Order of Julian of Norwich. Paraclete has published his previous books "The Revelations of Divine Love," "The Complete Julian of Norwich, " and "The Complete Imitation of Christ."

Judges' and contributors' comments

Alison Shell: St Francis de Sales was one of the most empathetic and pastorally sensitive writers ever; he doesn’t suffer from the clericalism that infects the writers of so many spiritual ‘classics’ and makes lay people feel guilty and inferior for having other things on their mind than God.
