First published in 1589, The Spiritual Combat provides timeless guidance in spiritual discipline.
St Francis de Sales read from it himself every day and recommended it to everyone under his direction.
Vigorous, realistic and full of keen insight into the vicissitudes of human nature, it consists of short chapters based on the maxim that in the spiritual life one must either "fight or die".
Father Scupoli shows the Christian how to combat his passions and vices, especially impurity and sloth, in order to arrive at victory.
