Description
A controversial theologian whose counsel and meditations have found a wide audience since the turn of the 18th century, French archbishop François Fénelon rose to a position of influence in the court of Louis XIV. Fénelon became a mentor to many members of the king's court, as well as to the Christian mystic Madame Guyon. Even after he was exiled from Versailles for writing Maxims of the Saints and The Adventures of Telemachus, Fénelon continued to correspond with those at court who had become his spiritual "children." Together with Pascal (who was an old man in Fénelon's youth), he showed how it was possible to have devotion and faith in the Age of Enlightenment.

"Peter Gorday's life of Fénelon is a gem. I recommend it to anyone with an interest in Fénelon or Christian mysticism in general."—Chad Helms

"Gorday traces the complex situation in Fénelon's time and the varying perspectives of his interpreters. He declares him not cunning but tough as a thinker. In this book, we get not only a fascinating story but also a subtle guide to self-examination."—Eugene TeSelle
