Summary : Centuries ago, Francis de Sales–bishop of Geneva during the lifetime of many first generation Protestant Calvinists–wrote about the importance of having a spiritual director. Yet he later told his biographer such a person “would be difficult to find,” suggesting that in these circumstances, “We can look for guidance among the books of authors who are no longer living. Devotional books are our best Directors.” Today, de Sales serves as such a spiritual director to countless modern day believers, and his Introduction to the Devout Life is recognized as one of the truly great works of devotional literature. Originally written as a series of letters of religious guidance, this enduring book is filled with thoughtful spiritual illustrations and radiates with a warm humanity that touches people of all religious backgrounds. A classic masterpiece of spiritual writing, de Sales’ book is acknowledged to be among the top handful of guides to Christian living. No matter where readers are in their spiritual development–whether they are beginners or skilled theologians–this modern interpretation, an “honest paraphrase” of de Sales’ work, will gently guide them down the clearest path imaginable into a deeper and more authentic religious life.

Summary : Texts centred on the mother of Jesus abound in religious traditions the world over, but thirteenth-century Old French lyric stands apart, both because of the enormous size of the Marian cult in thirteenth-century France and the lack of critical attention the genre has garnered from scholars. As hybrid texts, Old French Marian songs combine motifs from several genres and registers to articulate a devotional message. In this comprehensive and illuminating study, Daniel E. O'Sullivan examines the movement between secular and religious traditions in medieval culture that Old French religious song embodies. He demonstrates that Marian lyric was far more than a simple, mindless imitation of secular love song. On the contrary, Marian lyric participated in a dynamic interplay with the secular tradition that different composers shaped and reshaped in light of particular doctrinal and aesthetic concerns. It is a corpus that reveals itself to be far more malleable and supple than past readers have admitted. With an extensive index of musical and textual editions of dozens of songs, Marian Devotion in Thirteenth-Century French Lyric brings a heretofore neglected genre to light.

Summary : The condition of our lives before the Lord means a lot to our heavenly Father. This is why He sent His only Son, Jesus, to the cross to die for our sins. God has made abundant provision in His Word and through the blood of Jesus to bring forth sons and daughters in the likeness of Jesus.God has made provision to make the best believer out of you. The benefits of serving God based on our unconditional devotion are vast; the package of God's goodness in it can never be matched.I once struggled for months with a certain situation and thought God had forgotten me. One morning I woke with this question: "When you asked Me to save You, did I not save you?" "Yes, Lord," I answered. "And when you asked Me to fill you with My Spirit, did I not fill you?" "Yes, Lord," I answered. The Lord said, "When you have done all I command of you, expect Myblessings." God is faithful. He never forgets His promises, as long as we keepours. We can live in confident expectation and assurance that God willcome through for us. Our God is faithful!
