Salvation and spiritual perfection should not be sought haphazardly; a strategy is needed to win the battle for our souls.

The Spiritual Combat, first published in 1589, provides timeless guidance in spiritual discipline. St. Francis de Sales (1576-1622) read from it himself every day and recommended it to everyone under his direction.

Vigorous, realistic and full of keen insight into human nature, The Spiritual Combat consists of short chapters based on the maxim that in the spiritual life one must either "fight or die". Fr. Scupoli shows the Christian how to combat his passions and vices, especially impurity and sloth, in order to arrive at victory.

This is the original TAN edition now with updated typesetting, fresh new cover, new size and quality binding, and the same trusted content.

Andrew Giordano
Spiritual Combat - Required Reading especially in today's climate

I picked this up on the recommendation of a close friend when I finally got serious about living the Catholic Faith. It is a no-holds-barred approach on how to battle the conflict and evils of the outside world. Dom Lorenzo Scupoli lays it all out in this book. He was an apprentice to Saint Andrew Avellino and a contemporary of Saint Francis de Sales (he even gave him a copy!) I highly recommend The Spiritual Combat and A Treatise on Peace of Soul and wish that I had read it in my early 20's.

Spiritual Combat - needed for such a time as this

I got one for each member of my family.
Short chapters to digest each day and than refer back all our days.
Persevering to the end.

Essential Combat

If one were to have only a handful of books- this should be in the collection. Like Bergamo’s Humility of Heart, Spiritual Combat pulls no punches and the reader ends up reading into himself and recognizing his deep inner pride and the devil’s toehold on it. Moreover, it gives the practical advice how to engage the demon and our vices and grow in virtue in an ordered, direct manner. Most of us have read enough about our enemies; this is a manual that teaches us how to actually fight them. Ave Maria.
