More About the Author

Superior General (emeritus) of the Society of St. John of the Cross, Gregory Bellarmine is the author of the bestselling "Monthly Roman Breviary" and the critically-acclaimed retelling of the St. Nick story, "The Blood That Cries in the Ground," part of 'the Father Dante Journals.' As a Didache Christian in action and Traditional Roman Catholic by Fidelity, he regards all Christians as brothers & sisters in Christ, though separated by history. He lives a happy though sometimes sleepless life in the UK with his wife, two children and rather cheeky Parson Russell Terrier and celebrates the Mass privately with the pre 1958 Missale Romanum and publicly with the Anglican Catholic Missal.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 17 Jun. 1998
Format: Paperback
Very readible with many insights and practical "how to's" for a Christian's pursuit of spiritual growth. Being 500 years old, it also provides an historical background for more contemporary works, the absence of modern psychological jargon is refreshing. This version is theologically grounded in the Latin church and is the most literal translation. The Orthodox version from St. Vladimir's Press probably more suited to Protestant tastes, is loosly translated for content and embellished for a different school of thought, but tends to lose clarity in comparison. I suggest reading both versions concurrently. For Evangelicals, there are points for contention regardless, though neither invalidate the work's relavance for all Christians who strive after moral purity and virtue.

Going against the general consensus, I have to say that I didn't appreciate this book at all and didn't even get to the end. The Kindle version contains many typos which is incredibly annoying and the content itself is unstimulating. Have read far better spiritual books than this.

For your reference, I'm Catholic.

A Catholic Classic of Spirituality 2 Aug. 2003
By FrDylan F James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Along with The Inmitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis, and Introduction to the Devout Life by Francis De Sales, this book ranks as one of the all time classics of Catholic spirituality (and De Sales preferred this book to the Imitation of Christ because of the practical detail to be found in the Spiritual Combat).
I first read this book when I was starting seminary and found it instantly readable and inspiring. Like the Imitation of Christ it consists of many short concise chapters that merit being read and pondered. I would particularly recommend the book to anyone struggling for perfection, and with scrupulosity. The opening 6 chapters give great insights into the whole nature of what Christian perfection means, and how our frequent lapses into sin should not discourage us, but should rather be taken as opportunities for us to grow in our confidence in God and our distrust of ourselves. This is a book to be re-read often through life.

A Detailed Battleplan to Fight Your Life's Demons 20 April 2006
By OpusRay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is an extremely valuable resource in growing in the spiritual life. Everyone has their own obstacles that prevent them from growing closer to God. Dom Scupoli aids the reader in a step-by-step fashion on how to destroy those obstacles and temptations that come in life. He has us better know ourselves, while keeping the focus on God, that we may fight the good fight. Written in an easy-to-read format, anyone can win their spiritual battles with the help of this book. St. Francis de Sales read this book, and even carried it in his pocket for 18 years! A definite recommend!

Review from the Publisher 15 Mar. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One of the all-time greatest and best-known classics on the strategy for achieving spiritual perfection and salvation. First published in 1589, it was the favorite book of St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622), Doctor of the Church and master of the spiritual life. He carried a copy in his pocket for 18 years, read from it every day and recommended it to everyone under his direction. Based on the maxim that in the spiritual life one must either "fight or die," it shows how to combat one's passions and vices in order to arrive at victory. Explains how to acquire virtue and how to overcome impurity and sloth. Inspires and instructs today just as it has for 400 years. 240pp. PB. Imprimatur.

Keep a copy close by 15 July 2005
By Z. A. McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We are living in a morally corrupt world right now. Our country is moving deeper and deeper into an endless pit of self-destruction. I believed and fell deep into this pit myself. This book gave me the courage and strength to pull myself out of the pit.

Scupoli points out that we are truly in a life or death struggle. Our eternal souls depend on the victory or defeat we face in this life.

Read this book, highlight it, and keep it close by for use in the future.

With faith in God, and in His Church, you will have victory!
