Product Description

Product Description

God is sovereign.

God is in charge of everything, including the little things.

Not a hair falls from our heads without God's divine will.

We must rest in God's grace, as we are totally unable to contribute to our salvation.

What word pops into people's minds when they hear Christians making the above statements? Calvinist. Usually these beliefs are associated with those of the Calvinist persuasion. However, Father de Decaussade was a Roman Catholic Priest who taught that God is truly sovereign, and therefore our whole lives can be lived in the knowledge that all things are working for our good. We may not understand why God does things the way he does, or how our suffering can ultimately be for our good, but we can trust our benevolent Lord, who has decreed all things, is good and just. Reading Abandonment to Divine Providence will help the reader surrender to God's will. The result? Spiritual peace in the arms of a loving God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical spiritual direction. 9 Sep 2013
By Teesa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A little book with a big message. Truly classic, and one that can be referred to over and over again. The first two chapters deal with the doctrine of divine providence and the following chapters give very practical advice, showing the reader how to put trustful surrender to divine providence into practice. There are headings such as "In poverty and its hardships" "In sickness and infirmity" "In death and the manner of it" and "In the loss of spiritual consolation". Very sound doctrine with Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur.

All the spiritual wisdom you need in one small book you can return to again and again. A classic of the spiritual life lived in the ordinary mundane of everyday.

2.0 out of 5 stars Says "New Editon" but appears to be photocopy of 1921 edition - and bad typos on covers 29 Oct 2008
By old-writer fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought this "New Edition" of Caussade to get one in modern English. But when the book came it appears to be an exact photocopy of a 1921 version. The type is old looking and the English is not very accessible to modern readers. Moreover, there is a very bad typo on the cover, "...de Caussades hook (book) ..." and another on the back cover ("... solve diffietdties (difficulties) ..."! It is good to have the letters of Caussade which are included in this edition, but I feel cheated.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic 7 Sep 2012
By Rev Dr J - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a must read for any one serious about the spiritual path. You can open it up to any page and find a wisdom gem that is both inspirational and challenging. It has been a great help to me and my spouse because it affirms the sacrament of the moment the God's accessibility to all, everywhere, no strings.
