Robinson has retained Scupoli's appeal to the Catholic reader through a conversational style, short chapters, familiar examples from everyday life, and the pastoral bent which has marked his own outstanding career. Covering the basic difficulties of daily prayer and of obstacles to living the virtues, Scupoli and Robinson test the mettle of real Catholics by calling us to live an interior life for and with God.
"A serious, but readable, contemporary presentation of the spiritual wisdom contained in a 16th century spiritual classic which St. Francis De Sales highly praised. Robinson has a profound understanding and appreciation for the 'spiritual combat' dimension of our journey toward union with God."
-Ralph Martin, Author, Called to Holiness
