“Dr. Brant Pitre offers his readers a ‘biblical road map of the spiritual life’ [from the introduction] in his trademark approach, exploring the Jewish roots of Jesus’ teaching on the spiritual life and wedding to this the classic writings of the saints. His style is accessible to readers and his content likewise approachable for all. Both the topics covered and the constant reference to Scripture render this book fresh and inviting. Read it, and you will find your spiritual life renewed.”—Fr. Timothy Gallagher, author of The Discernment of Spirits: An Ignatian Guide for Everyday Living

“A broadly accessible, highly practical invitation to life with Christ modeled by the spiritual giants of Church history and rooted in Scripture, this book calls the Church to a deeper communion with God, punctuated by habits of prayer, meditation on Scripture, contemplation, fasting, and almsgiving, to ultimately bear the fruit of humility, mercy, and diligence. . . . Deeply transformative, convicting, and compelling.”—Catherine Wright, associate professor of biblical and theological studies at Bethel University and author of Spiritual Practices of Jesus

“With clear and convincing explanations, this comprehensive guide roots the Christian spiritual life in Scripture. Pitre’s lucid writing teaches, inspires, and motivates us to pursue our call to holiness, with Jesus as our primary guide.”—Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble, FSP, author of The Prodigal You Love and Memento Mori

“Pitre’s little theological gem shines through his clear, accessible writing and wonderful depth of insight. This young scholar is already one of the great teachers of Scripture in our time.”—Bernhard Blankenhorn, professor aggregatus, University of Fribourg, Switzerland
