Introduction to the Devout Life - Francis de Sales - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of Introduction to the Devout Life:

How to live for God, even if you aren't a dedicated Religious.

My favorite Saint Francis de Sales quote from the book:

"Be who you are and be that well."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Can you keep your meditations with you?

Do you pray with your whole heart?

My review of Introduction to the Devout Life:

A classic in the practice of Christianity.

Practical advice and down-to-earth.

A great read for anyone trying to develop their spiritual life.
