  • The Spiritual Combat & A Treatise on Peace of Soul
  • A well-loved Catholic classic
  • Recommended by St. Francis de Sales

The Spiritual Combat, first published in 1589, provides timeless guidance in spiritual discipline. St Francis de Sales (1576-1622) read from it every day and recommended it to everyone under his spiritual direction.

Salvation and spiritual perfection should not be sought haphazardly; a strategy is needed to win the battle for our souls. Vigorous, realistic, and full of keen insight into human nature, The Spiritual Combat & A Treatise on Peace of Soul consists of short chapters based on the maxim that in the spiritual life one must either "fight or die."

Fr. Scupoli shows the Christian how to combat his passions and vices, especially impurity and sloth, in order to arrive at victory.

    The Spiritual Combat & A Treatse on Peace of Soul

    I gave this book 5 stars because of the content. I do, however, have trouble understanding some of the content of the book. Having been written in the 1500's the theology content is difficult to understand; however, in some respects, I can understand other aspects. It may take some time but I will not give up reading this book.
