Abandonment to Divine Providence: The Classic Text with a Spiritual Commentary (Classics with Commentary)
Abandonment to Divine Providence: The Classic Text with a Spiritual Commentary (Classics with Commentary)
by Jean-Pierre De Caussade
Edition: Paperback
Price: 13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This can be a hard book to understand and put into practise,but fr Billy's commentary and short meditations,take you,gently,along the road.
Although this book was originally written,over one hundred years ago by a
Jesuit priest,it is still relevant,even more so today.
I would also say that,although this was written by a catholic priest,it is still accessible to a non-catholic Christian,as all the doctrine in the book is supported by numerous reference to Holy Scripture and is a REAL TREASURE to any Christian seeking for a closure walk with Our Blessed Lord.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent devotional., 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent devotional,leads you into a greater understanding of the gospels,whilst being very prayerful.
One complaint,,,,,this book was written in France,in the 17th century,by a catholic priest,whilst a dispute was going on between two different catholic factions.
This version was translated by an Protestant clergyman,in the 19th century,and he assumes that because of the dispute,mentioned above,that the author was some kind of:::crypto Protestant and has consequently edited out some of the so called ::romish practises::which the translator freely admits in his prologue.
This does not have to be a hindrance,but the catholic reader,should be aware of this slight ::bowdlerisation::then you can enjoy the real catholic spirituality in the book.
Just as an aside,the original author,the french catholic priest,although he had some disputes with the catholic hierarchy,he died in the bosun of the church,a faithful catholic.,,,,,Deo Gratias.


A Commentary on Trustful Surrender to Divine Providence: 1
A Commentary on Trustful Surrender to Divine Providence: 1
by Nijanandas Bharati
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars By another path, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read many books about::Divine Providence::surrender to the will of God,but the actual practise,the doing eluded me.Although I was initially sceptical,because the commentary,on a very Catholic book,was by a Hindu Swami,,,but as I began to read,I saw things I had not seen before.The commentator does mention some Hindu texts,but his main focus is on the Christian understanding.I found the book a revelation and although I am nowhere near my goal,as a result of this commentary,I am a lot further up the road.
After reading this commentary,I re-read::Trustful surrender to Divine Providence::and this time he two Jesuit Fathers,who wrote the original book,in the 17th century,really spoke to me anew.
Sometimes,you have to go away,to come back,but when you look back,it's a straight path.,,,,,,,

This a great watch,but you need an A- level to set it.Have taken it to watch shop TWICE!but never managed to get everything set.Either right time,wrong day,,,,right day wrong date.Love this watch,but becoming increasingly frustrated,as I like to have all settings correct,just a bit fastidious,,,,,,at the moment I am settling for the right time and date,,,but the day,,,,,uuuuuuurrrr.

This is an excellent company to deal with,always a prompt service and although all the books I have bought have been second hand,they have always been in very,very good condition.
Regards the book,it is an old catholic book,from the 1950s,with a very good lay introduction to the spiritual exercises of st ignatius,a good simple primer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kabbalah explained, 16 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is one of the few books,that I have read on this subject,that gives some explanation and understanding on this subject to a non-Jewish,non Hebrew speaking person.
A difficult concept to get your head around,but this book,by no means the last word,is extremely helpful.
