I have marked it as "reading" as it is one of those books I return to frequently. Each letter offers an important insight, and gently takes my thinking away from its usual self-centered mode, to a more other-centered or God-centered one.

I guess I use this book as my Guide to Good Living. I should probably read it more often!

The Seeking Heart reads like a collection of excerpts from his correspondence. The short selections, some as short as a couple of paragraphs, none longer than two pages, admonish the reader to trust God, endure suffering, and pray earnestly.

Although no context for the selections is given in the Seed Sowers Library of Classics edition, one can often easily discern hints of the back stories of these letters.

The Seeking Heart is bits and pieces, without a continuous narrative or development.

Each short selection can be read independently. However, Fenelon returns to several themes throughout.

Telemachus is therefore widely seen as the most thorough exposition of the brand of reformism in the Beauvilliers-Chevreuse circle, which hoped that following Louis XIV's death, his brand of autocracy could be replaced by a monarchy less centralized and less absolute, and with a greater role for aristocrats such as Beauvilliers and Chevreuse.

The commission sat at Issy and, after six months of deliberations, delivered its opinion in the Articles d'Issy, 34 articles which briefly condemned certain of Mme Guyon's opinions, as well as set forth a brief exposition of the Catholic view of prayer. Mme Guyon immediately submitted to the decision. At Issy, the commission asked Bossuet to follow up the Articles with an exposition. This unleashed two years of pamphlet warfare as the two sides traded opinions.

However, that same year, The Adventures of Telemachus was published.He died on 7 January The Seeking Heart reads like a collection of excerpts from his correspondence. Each stirring work is divided into short chapters, making Spiritual Progress ideal for morning or evening devotions.

It is thus a wonderful book full of guidance for one's spiritual progress. These five inspiring works are composed by three closely linked mystical thinkers of the 17th century--Francois Fenelon, Madame Guyon, and Pere La Combe. Several passages spoke directly to me. Highly recommend this to those seeking a closer walk with the Lord.
