A Perfect Guide
Never out-of-print, St. Francis de Sales' best-known work, Introduction to the Devout Life, is considered a mirror of its author-thorough, reliable, authoritative, kind and gentle. A great saint and doctor of the Church, Francis remains a perfect guide for today's busy Catholic as he focuses on how lay people, no matter what their circumstances, can and should grow in holiness.

Process of Transformation
Combining the teaching of the "Gentle Doctor" with those of Teresa of Avila, Vatican Council II, Pope John Paul II and more, Ralph Martin reveals that holiness in everyday life is not only possible, but actually makes you a better worker, spouse, friend, family member, or whatever your station in life.
Most important of all, you'll discover the absolutely necessary process of transformation that must happen to make holiness in your everyday life possible. Order Holiness in Everyday Life: The Wisdom of St. Francis de Sales today and take your first step to a happier, holier more satisfying life.
