The Way combines passages from sacred Scripture with tales from Escrivá's life and work, snippets of conversation, and extracts from his personal writings, reflecting Escrivá's idea that God may be discovered in professional and daily situations. The book's greatest appeals are its clear, conversational writing style and its deeply felt humanity, which eloquently express the notion that the human is not foreign to the divine and that the truly Christian spiritual attitude may be defined as oneness of life.
The Way has sold over four and a half million copies in forty-three different languages since it was originally published in 1939. This handsome paperback version will stand amongst classics like John of the Cross' Dark Night of the Soul, Thomas à Kempis' Imitation of Christ, and Teresa of Avila's The Interior Castle.
Paperback. 224 pages.
