Spiritual Progress is a collection of five powerful works intended for daily
devotions and personal reflection. These five inspiring works are composed by
three closely linked mystical thinkers of the 17th century--Francois
Fenelon, Madame Guyon, and Pere La Combe. Fenelon, an archbishop, wrote the
first two works, Christian Counsel and Spiritual Letters, which illustrate his
keen sense of spiritual counsel. Madame Guyon, a close friend of Fenelon, wrote
the next works, Method of Prayer and On the Way to God, which indicate the
importance of constant prayer. Pere La Combe, the spiritual director of Madame
Guyon, wrote the final work, Spiritual Maxims, which emphasizes the importance
of desire and love for God. Each stirring work is divided into short chapters,
making Spiritual Progress ideal for morning or evening devotions. It is thus a
wonderful book full of guidance for one's spiritual progress.
