Living the Little Way of Love
About the book
Here is a fine and beautifully written book. Full of charm and insight, it opens up the spirituality of St. Thérèse to anybody seeking an uncomplicated path to God. But let no one be fooled! The ease of this little way does not mean an escape from real life. Rather it is a deep, though gentle, exploration of the spiritual experience lived by saints in every age.
Coming closer to St. Thérèse of Lisieux is to discover afresh how to pray, how to trust in God's limitless love, how to live in joyful confidence as a child of the Creator of all things. She is a friend who introduces us to true spiritual childlikeness, the key that unlocks the gates of the kingdom of heaven.
Wonderfully grasping St. Thérèse's 'little way,' John Nelson shows profoundly yet simply how holiness is possible for everyone. Through other classic spiritual texts, he provides for Thérèse a perceptive, beautiful setting.
