Item description for The Spiritual Guide (Library of Spiritual Classics) by Michael Molinos...

There have been more copies of this book burned than perhaps any other single Christian book ever published.

So powerful was its influence on Europe that within 6 years of its release this book had been translated into every language in Western Europe. In Naples, Italy it was said that 20,000 Christians gathered in small groups to practice inward prayer.

Michael Molinos came closer to reforming the Catholic church than any other single man in history, yet he ended up sealed in a dungeon, his book condemned. A man so controversial that even until today the Vatican will not release the transcript of his (secret) trial. Now, for the first time ever, this book appears in modern English. The first English language release in over a hundred years.

Included in the book is the first biography of Michael Nolinos to appear in English in over 100 years.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Spiritual Guide (Library of Spiritual Classics)?

Strongly influenced by Quietism  Apr 11, 2002
Michael Molinos is credited with being one of the chief contributors to the doctrine of Quietism. The following quote is taken from The Catholic Encyclopedia Online article defining Quietism, by E.A. PACE:

"Quietism (Lat. quies, quietus, passivity) in the broadest sense is the doctrine which declares that man's highest perfection consists in a sort of psychical self-annihilation and a consequent absorption of the soul into the Divine Essence even during the present life. In the state of "quietude" the mind is wholly inactive; it no longer thinks or wills on its own account, but remains passive while God acts within it. "

Those considering the purchase of this book are encouraged to read the entire article. While the Quietist practices (or nonpractices) of utter silence and passivity may be objectionable to some, the ardent desire for God, the earnest turning away from things of lesser value to fully seek him, and the joys of finding him as described in this book should provide encouragement for those that aspire to experience the greater depths of their Lord. However, despite it's desirable points I would not recommend this book as an introduction to the inner life. I would recommend instead Practicing His Presence, published by SeedSowers.

Heavily edited translation  Aug 10, 1999
This translation cuts out most of the meat of the original work (entire paragraphs, and, oddly enough, all the references to scripture), and tries too hard to put what's left of it in terms that modern born-again Christians will be happier with. There are some older translations available on the net, and in places comparing this to them looks like there are two completely different books.
Gripping book that explores the depths of intimacy with God!  Nov 16, 1998
In today's society we live according to our five senses. Our emotions control our lives. We constantly need to be stimulated by the pleasures of the world. In this book Michael Molinos talks of our need of death to the flesh, to be identified with our Lord Jesus Christ and His death and resurrection on the cross. Molinos points out how we must understand that everything which happens in our life is used by God to produce a deeper relationship and growth spiritually! Lest you write this author off as another theological scholar writing only with head knowledge gained in a university, you must know that you are gravely mistaken! This man who lived in the seventeeth century gave his life and was sealed in a dungeon for his beliefs. This truly is a man who lived what he preached, not by any strength of his own but by Christ Jesus who was his strength, victory and joy. He points out that the valley is the same as the hilltop. If we desire the gifts of Christ Jesus we must also desire the pain because of what it produces! Death to our flesh will be painful!
