Product Description

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 in his diocese. His letters of counsel and spiritual meditations have found a wide audience for more than three centuries.

In this Christian classic, The Complete Fenelon, his writings have been translated and edited for a new generation of readers. This volume contains more than 100 letters of spiritual direction, 85 meditations on living the Christian life, and reflections on twenty-one seasons and holidays of the Christian year. Paperback.

Publisher's 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. Fénelon 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, Fénelon 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 Fénelon includes more than one hundred of Fénelon’s letters of spiritual counsel, as well as meditations on eighty-five other topics. Also translated here into English for the first time are Fénelon’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 Fénelon.
