The desire to be closer to God that he found in people from all levels of society led him to compile these instructions on how to live in Christ. Francis s compassionate Introduction leads the reader through practical ways of attaining a devout life without renouncing the world and offers prayers and meditations to strengthen devotion in the face of temptation and hardship.
