By Jean Daujat
First published in 1963 in English from the original French edition, The Faith Applied emphasizes the importance of both doctrinal knowledge and ascetical practice as a means of insuring serious personal commitment in living the Faith.
Author Jean Daujat explains the demands of Christian faith with clarity so that one may struggle to live them well. Beginning with life’s ultimate aim—salvation—he progresses through the subjects of charity, perfection of virtue, prayer, presence of God, interior struggle, union with the life of Jesus Christ, and finally the sacraments, Scripture and spiritual direction. This work provides a complete spiritual overview to show what is necessary to take one’s faith more seriously and to live it with a great spirit of struggle.
