Abandonment to Divine Providence (Classics with Commentary)

The Classic Text With a Spiritual Commentary by Dennis Billy

by Jean-Pierre de Caussade

Jean-Pierre de Caus­sade, a French Jesuit spir­i­tu­al direc­tor and writer born in the late sev­en­teenth cen­tu­ry, is best known for his belief in the sacred­ness of the present moment, or the eter­nal now.” His mas­ter­piece, Aban­don­ment to Divine Prov­i­dence, has been cel­e­brat­ed by spir­i­tu­al writ­ers as diverse as Richard Fos­ter and Alan Watts for its abil­i­ty to invoke the mys­tery of eter­ni­ty in the now – a tenet of spir­i­tu­al­i­ty that res­onates across faith tra­di­tions.

Accom­pa­nied by the prob­ing, expert com­men­tary of Den­nis Bil­ly, C.Ss.R., this exem­plary edi­tion of de Caus­sade’s Aban­don­ment offers new­com­ers to mys­ti­cism and spir­i­tu­al direc­tion a clear, com­pelling path to enter­ing into God’s presence.
