The Complete Fenelon

Full Product Description

The most engaging collection of the French mystics' writings now available Twenty-first century Christians are now discovering the wisdom of this controversial theologian and spiritual thinker. Fenelon showed how it was possible to have devotion and faith in the original Age of Reason. In many respects, rationality still rules today in religion and culture, and as a result, Fenelon speaks to modern Christians wanting deeper faith and a meaningful inner life. His writings have never been as accessible as they are now in these lively new translations. The Complete Fenelon includes more than one hundred of Fenelon's letters of spiritual counsel, as well as meditations on eighty-five other topics. Also translated here into English for the first time are Fenelon's personal reflections on twenty-one seasons and holidays of the Christian year. An introduction from bestselling translator Robert J. Edmonson and in-depth recommended reading and bibliography make this the first place to start in any study of Francois Fenelon. Francois Fenelon was a seventeenth-century French archbishop who rose to a position of influence in the court of Louis XIV.
Amid the splendor and decadence of Versailles, Fenelon became a wise mentor to many members of the king's court. Later exiled for political reasons, he set out to improve the lot of peasants of his diocese. His letters of counsel and spiritual meditations have found a wide audience for more than three centuries.

The Complete Fenelon by Robert E. Edmonson was published by Paraclete Press in December 2008. The ISBN for The Complete Fenelon is 9781557256072.
