Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Theologian with Insights Ahead of His Time  Jan 30, 2002
I have found Fenelon's spiritual insights to be quite
exceptional. Though most of his works are at least two and a half centuries old, they seem so relevant to current Christians who seek spiritual guidance. It is often interesting to compare and contrast his views with those of contemporary ministries. For instance, Fenelon has conducted expositions on taking up one's cross that I think stifle the logic expressed by many of today's clergymen.

Just as C.S. Lewis espoused how forgiveness should not start with the Gestapo but with more basic contentions, Fenelon upheld that to take up one's cross does not begin with threats to physical safety or health as many twentieth-century theologians have asserted. He wrote that taking up one's cross meant the following: to live in humility and not be proud, to deny the world's wisdom and to accept God's counsel, and to never seek worldly advancement, for only by obeying God can we obtain the highest places. In essence, Fenelon has established that only by following God's advice at the expense of denying ourselves the world's delights that are not compatible with Scripture can we take up our crosses.
 
A Book To Keep and Use For A Lifetime  Jul 4, 2000
This book will be very helpful to anyone with a desire to strengthen their relationship with God and know His heart in every situation. The meditations are scripturally based and well balanced. They offer comfort, encouragment and challenge for daily living. I especially appreciated the introduction which gave a synopsis of Fenelon's life and the political and social climate in which he lived. For me, it gave an additional depth to his work. It is easy to see why his writings are as relevant today as they were almost 300 years ago. I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to know God's heart and see God's hand in all aspects of their daily lives.
