God hides behind the simplest of daily activities; finding Him is a matter of total surrender to His will. That's the message of this eighteenth-century inspirational classic by a French Jesuit writer. The Reverend Jean-Pierre de Caussade (1675 1751) encouraged others to ""live in the moment,"" accepting everyday obstacles with humility and love.Caussade's counsel, which promises comfort and holiness to every soul with good will, has guided generations of seekers to spiritual peace. Some of his advice is particularly relevant to beginners; other teachings are geared to those possessing a more advanced degree of spirituality. All will recognise the voice of an authority, who combines practical and theoretical knowledge. Modern readers will find this volume a path to peace amid life's worries and anxieties.
