Item description for The Spiritual Combat Revisited by Fr Jonathan Robinson & Jonathan Robinson...
The spiritual wisdom of a classic on "spiritual warfare." Fr. Robinson has done a great service in revitalizing Lorenzo Scupoli's classic, Spiritual Combat, so that contemporary Catholics can rediscover this rich work that has served many generations of Catholics. This book is about the life of prayer and personal reform and renewal. It fits squarely into the tradition of the "great masters" of the spiritual life, and to the line of great modern writers on spirituality. It is a work of particular relevance that confronts modern culture with the tough-minded, deeply authentic challenge of spiritual combat. Robinson has retained Scupoli's appeal to the ordinary Catholic reader through a conversation style, short chapters, familiar examples from everyday life, and the pastoral bent which has marked his own outstanding career. Covering the basic difficulties of daily prayer and of obstacles to living the virtues, Scupoli and Robinson test the mettle of real Catholics by calling us to live an interior life for and with God.

Everyday Life Dilemna May 22, 2005
I am awe struck at the beauty of the devoted soul, with all the virtues and love of God. I can read books on any given saint for hours on end and relish in the splendor and glory of God reflected in one person. But to apply this to my own life, especially in the day to day, hour to hour experience - forget it! But this is exactly where spiritual warfare exists. This is where the battle for souls is won or lost. This book has taught me what I need to do to overcome my own "mysterious resistance" and make an excellent start on the road toward holiness.
