This book is full of immense amounts of wisdom. The chapters are small, 1-3 pages long, so I take this little book to Mass and read one before Mass starts. Some of the chapters have been so powerful I feel like been grown spiritually from reading them. I often have "aha" moments. Amazing piece of work. Highly recommend!
One to read at least once a year. A Classic for those interested in an intimate relationship with God.
Excellent guide to life. Written by Fenelon who was serving as an instructor to the royal children in France during the Napleonic times. His instruction in this book is easy to read and at the same time is classic and pure in its focus on how to live a Godly life.

This is not a light read, but it is powerful if you take your time with it. The concepts in this book deserve quiet consideration. I would recommend it be read about ten pages at a time.
The Best collection of his letters that i have read. Loved it.

François de Salignac de la Mothe-Fénelon, more commonly known as François Fénelon was a French Roman Catholic theologian, poet and writer. He today is remembered mostly as one of the main advocates of quietism and as the author of The Adventures of Telemachus, a scabrous attack on the French monarchy, first published in 1699.
