From the Back Cover:

Originally published in 1884, this translation of the 17th-century work Treatise on the Love of God is a challenging, complex text discussing the inclinations of the soul, especially toward a love of the divine. Saint Francis de Sales explains to dedicated readers how every aspect of human life has as its goal the cultivation of this divine affection--the author devotes great effort upon and exploration of this single emotion.

Devout Christians and spiritual seekers who delve into this book will be rewarded by the great insights the saint has to offer.
