The Spiritual Combat
Originally published in the late sixteenth century, The Spiritual Combat—a book St. Francis de Sales carried in his pocket for nearly 20 years—offers 66 short maxims in order to confront the enemy and come out victorious over evil. Scupoli shows how the Christian can combat the lusts and illicit passions inherit in his or her heart and yet achieve ultimate victory in the end.
This great spiritual classic has, and continues, to inspire and influence believers throughout all of Christendom. It is a book whose message is vital in reforming the believer’s life and practice. The Christian life is one filled with spiritual combat, and this inspirational book will show you just how that life, in practice, is supposed to look like.
