The ever-popular and prolific Peter Kreeft says that the most important topic he has written about is how one becomes holy; or to put it another way, how one becomes a saint. Kreeft contends that moving toward perfect love is the whole purpose of life.
Using the insights and experiences of saints and great spiritual writers throughout history, Kreeft shows what holiness is and how it can be achieved. He especially draws upon the spiritual classic Abandonment to Divine Providence by Jean-Pierre de Caussade, S.J. The core of Caussade's timeless gem is that God reveals himself to all of us through the daily events of our lives. The surest way toward spiritual growth, therefore, is by perceiving and accepting the merciful will of God in every situation.
"Life, in the end, has only one tragedy: not to have been a saint."
