Summary

Discover the wisdom of Francois Fenelon-a seventeenth-century theologian, poet, and friend. When fear, questions, or just plain lethargy get in the way of your relationship with God, sometimes an older, wiser guide can point the way. For pastor and young father Winn Collier, Fenelon became an important voice. Francois Fenelon was unflustered by circumstances and unafraid of the darkness in his life. He had the courage to tell friends when they were wrong. Above all else-as Winn Collier shows in this fresh look at a Christian classic-Fenelon knew the ways of God, walked in the Spirit, and found true friendship. Book jacket.
