The Spiritual Life - Rev. Adolphe Tanquerey
A Treatise on Ascetical and Mystical Theology
By Rev. Adolphe Tanquerey, S.S., D.D.
Although the treatise was composed chiefly for priests and seminarians, it has also obtained wide circulation in religion communities and among the faithful who are striving to live a devout life in the world and are looking for a guide to point the way to an enlightened and well-balance piety.
In this treatise is a complete and orderly summary of all the questions of the spiritual life. Nearly one fourth of the work is devoted to the fundamental doctrines of the elevation and the fall of man and his redemption through the grace merited by Christ. This book can be made to serve as a devotional treatise for spiritual reading since it avoids in great measure the stiffness and dryness of the text-book style.
