Description

The spiritual wisdom of a classic on "spiritual warfare." Fr. Robinson has done a great service in revitalizing Lorenzo Scupoli's classic, Spiritual Combat, so that contemporary Catholics can rediscover this rich work that has served many generations of Catholics. This book is about the life of prayer and personal reform and renewal. It fits squarely into the tradition of the "great masters" of the spiritual life, and to the line of great modern writers on spirituality. It is a work of particular relevance that confronts modern culture with the tough-minded, deeply authentic challenge of spiritual combat. Robinson has retained Scupoli's appeal to the ordinary Catholic reader through a conversation style, short chapters, familiar examples from everyday life, and the pastoral bent which has marked his own outstanding career. Covering the basic difficulties of daily prayer and of obstacles to living the virtues, Scupoli and Robinson test the mettle of real Catholics by calling us to live an interior life for and with God.show more

Review quote

"A serious, but readable, contemporary presentation of the spiritual wisdom contained in a 16th century spiritual classic which St. Francis De Sales highly praised. Robinson has a profound understanding and appreciation for the 'spiritual combat' dimension of our journey toward union with God."show more
