This is by no means light reading, but the lawyer's mind, theologian's precision, and pastoral father's homely charm are a winning combination.

The Scale of Perfection book. This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally. And that is a shame, because there is some good content in this book it's just completely overshadowed by all of the illegibility issues! First and foremost 's' and 'f' are consistently and constantly transposed, even after you figure out the pattern, you can't Praise God, that is over.

This is my 4th reading of this devotional classic. This translation is slightly more modern than my printed version but still a bit more readable, even if it uses a lot of Elizabethan language. It covers a lot of the same ground as Teresa of Avila, DeSales, and DeCausade. Firmly rooted in the Catholic tradition, nevertheless it can be read, with profit, by those familiar with Wesleyan Holiness thought. Wesley's Plain Account of Christian Perfection is a still newer treatment of what it means to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind. If that is your desire, this book can help you understand the ramifications for your life. Read it.

This, plus the Cloud Of Unknowing, gives you most of what you would ever need. Add Baker's Sancta Sophia/Holy Wisdom, and you are done. You can study Avila and San Juan de la Cruz, but their florid classic Spanish does not translate well, while the previous mentioned works all are English (Middle and Elizabethan) and translate directly to modern English without a hitch.

Walter Hilton's massive undertaking (the first thorough treatment of ascetic theology in the English language) is as rewarding for those today as in his own era - and a careful reading makes one realise that he was treating many of the same difficulties we would find in our own time. This is by no means light reading, but the lawyer's mind, theologian's precision, and pastoral father's homely charm are a winning combination. (How can anyone resist one who, after giving an explanation of sin so with the lawyer's accuracy that one nearly searches for the section on plea bargaining, then tenderly reassures his reader that God is most generous with forgiveness or "heaven would be much too empty?)I would recommend it (if not require it) of anyone with an interest either in ascetic theology or fourteenth century England.

This is not a scanned version as reviews of the other Kindle versions lament. Type is perfect and clear. Translation appears to be same as CCEL version. Thanks Amazon.

An old favourite, with lots of good advice. This is a book you read again and again. It doesn't matter with books like this. You can start on any page. The point is: they take you there.

For those interested in developing their spiritual life, this book covers all aspects and will help greatly.
The book meets my requirements although the print is not perfect and somewhat difficult to read. Nevertheless good value for money.
