From the back of the book:
Christ the Life of the Soul is a classic guide to the spiritual life that had a direct influence on several Popes, generations of priests and religious, and countless members of the laity. In clear, inspiring language the author discusses every aspect of our journey to Christ: “the source of all light, all grace, all holiness – the true Life of our life.”
Written for Christians in every walk of life, here are pages of practical knowledge and timeless wisdom, filled with rich insight, spiritual refreshment, inspiration and encouragement. Long out of print we are pleased to offer Marmion's greatest work in a vibrant new translation that captures all of its depth and spiritual power, while remaining meticulously faithful to the French language original.
An authentic treasury of spiritual truth.’ — Pope John Paul II, speaking at Blessed Columba’s Beatification Ceremony

‘You have written a very beautiful book.’ —Pope Benedict XV
‘An invitation to laity, religious, and clergy to return to the pure waters of life and leave behind the murky creeks and polluted rivers that have engulfed us for much of the last half century.’ — Fr. Benedict Groeschel
