Item Description...
The founder of Opus Dei introduces the beliefs and principles of this powerful and influential movement within the Catholic Church, explaining how to put the teachings of Jesus into everyday practice by emphasizing the Christian virtues and sanctifying one's work. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
Reflecting Josemaria Escriva's belief that God can be found in professional and everyday settings, "The Way "blends passages from sacred Scripture with anecdotes drawn from Escriva's life and work, snatches of conversation, and selections from his personal letters. The direct, conversational writing style and its deeply felt humanity are among the book's main attractions and beautifully convey the belief that the human is not foreign to the divine and that the fully Christian spiritual attitude can be described as unity of life.
Since it was first published in 1939, more than four and a half million copies of "The Way "have been sold in forty-three different languages. This handsome paperback edition will take its place alongside such seminal works as John of the Cross's "Dark Night of the Soul," Thomas a Kempis's "Imitation of Christ, " and Teresa of Avila's "The Interior Castle."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Convert's Perspective on "The Way"  Jun 30, 2006
THE WAY (or Camino) is a terrific book of short numbered meditations -- it contains the spirit of Opus Dei ("Work of God"). The writings are great to read before bed -- like a type of spirtual poetry. The new edition by DoubleDay is printed on high quality paper -- better than the little edition by Specter. It's not a book to burn through however (i.e., to read), but a thousand suggestions from a saint as to how we, the laity, can increase our holiness through our day-to-day work -- making the mundane sacred. You don't have to be a Catholic to benefit from this book: it's useful to anyone that wants to better connect one's religion with one's day-to-day actions.
Right to the point -- a constant companion  Jun 30, 2006
I have loved THE WAY for a number of years, along with the FORGE and the FURROW. Traditional (in the best sense of the word) Catholic spirituality in easy to digest format yet leaving in the "Cross" ... not for the uncommitted or Sunday only Catholic but for those who really want to progress in their union iwth Christ and their love of Neighbor. This edition is excellent....some explanatory notes at the bottom of some pages, excellent readable type, nice format, index, scripture index......can't recommend it too highly.
Powerful  Jun 30, 2006
St. Josemaria Escriva's 'The Way" was very influential. Obviously, some people will instantly jump to the conclusion that Opus Dei is a cult and that 'The Way' is its tool. If one looks past the lies that have been stirred up in the past years, the truth can be found. In the right mindset, 'The Way' is great advice on how to live a better life.
Uniquely useful spiritual classic  Jun 27, 2006
This is a book to pray with. A thousand short points,
some of which leap out at you -- but not always the same
ones -- every time you open it. There is no other work
(other then the author's own Furrow and Forge) that provides
such useful stimuli for conversation with God, without itself
becoming a distraction from prayer.

NOT Spirituality Lite.
The Spiritual Classic of Opus Dei's Founder.  Jun 18, 2006
_The Way: The Essential Classic of Opus Dei's Founder_ by Saint Josemaria Escriva, first published in 1939 in Spain, consists of spiritual reflections for Christians. Saint Josemaria Escriva was a Spanish priest who founded the organization Opus Dei ("God's Work") in 1928 as a special institution within the church for people in all walks of life to seek Christ and to grow with him. Opus Dei has continued to do good works motivated by a tradition of charity since then. Escriva was made a saint in 2002.

This book consists of spiritual reflections for Christians and members of Opus Dei, which concern everyday life and the struggles man faces with sin. Escriva begins his book with these words,
"Read these counsels slowly.
Pause to meditate on these thoughts.
They are things that I whisper in your ear -
confiding them -
as a friend, as a brother, as a father."
In particular, Escriva emphasizes manly character and uprightness before God for those who seek Christ. This book also focuses on the everyday doings of ordinary Catholics, showing how they may come to know God in their work and the vocations which they are called to do. Escriva emphasizes Christ and his love for us, as well as Marian piety, and the importance of receiving the Eucharist in the Holy Mass. Escriva frequently quotes from Holy Scripture mentioning for example Saints Peter and Paul, but also mentions later saints such as Ignatius, Xavier, and Teresa of Avila. Escriva also mentions the role that the Catholic must face in dealing with the world and with those who may oppose his faith, but also the need for becoming an apostle and following a calling. Among the important virtues emphasized by Escriva is that of obedience, and Escriva emphasizes the role of a spiritual director in the life of the faithful. The counsels contained in this book offer much for the reader to meditate upon. They are unique reflections upon the Christian spirit, the reading of which should be coupled with fervent prayer.
