Publisher's Summary

A classic work that has the potential of benefiting any true believer in God. Written with a humble heart, Francis De Sales outlines the practical points of living/pursuing the devoted life in a way that is able to be followed by the common man. Holy Scripture is interwoven throughout this piece, providing a sure foundation for us all to stand upon.
Catholic and Protestant believers alike should find great insight into the the deeper things of walking with Christ, while partaking in this book. It is my prayer that you will draw closer to Jesus and find the hope of truly living the devoted life! Be blessed.

Incomparable Content - - Excellent Narration

What did you love best about Introduction to the Devout Life?

17th century spiritual direction that is completely relevant in today's life and times. Written for those living in the world it can easily be applied not only to one's spiritual growth but to all of our interactions and challenges in the secular world. The narration captures the voice I would imagine for St Francis de Sales and his qualities as a spiritual director. ...intelligent practical, truthful, direct, patient, loving and calming.

Spiritual Direction From St. Francis De Sales

I truly enjoyed listening to The Introduction to the Devout Life. I love listening to everything written by or about saints and this was no exception. This audiobook is such a treasure for anyone. Every single passage in this book are words to live by. I've listened to several of my own audiobooks by saints such as St. Francis and St. Therese and this one was right up there with them. Loved it!

This was an audiobook I listened to in a few sittings. It was like music to my ears and I'll listen to it again. Robert J. Shaw's narration was perfect. He spoke very clearly and from his heart. He's a new reader for me and I'll listen to him again.
