    1. Don't read it too quickly; think of it like eating cheese cake and you eat it bit by bit so you can take it in. Three lines in a paragraph could be packed with so much wisdom that we can detail it into a whole written page. The book is written by a guy who was enlightened by the Spirit to know the anatomy of his own spiritual life and some others. He can anticipate the traps we can easily fall into as we think that we are fine because we have paid our dues in external acts of piety. Not! Rather, [...]


    2. This book is a treasury of brilliant spiritual advice!! It's a must-read for every serious Catholic! Now I think that I picked it up a bit late >.< I wish I had known some of its more important admonitions much earlier. The book treats kinds of temptations separately; for example, this is the first I read that explains how sexual temptation is unique in that it is to be always avoided immediately instead of be faced like most other temptations. I have never read such specific advice in any [...]


    3. One of the three great introductions to the spiritual life, along with the "Imitation of Christ" and St. Francis de Sales' "Introduction to the Devout Life," Scupoli's "Spiritual Combat" is my favorite. I have profited much from the emphasis on the basics of the spiritual life, beginning with a distrust of self and confidence in God, as well as the many practical suggestions and penetrating insights. This is a book that can either be read quickly or savored over time as a series of 66 meditation [...]


    4. "The Spiritual Combat" and a "Treatise on Peace of Soul" are masterpieces of ascetic theology. The two works have been joined together for centuries, but they are really two distinct works. Whereas "The Spiritual Combat" focuses on developing virtues in general, the "Treatise on Peace of Soul" is chiefly concerned with cultivating a deep disposition towards peace. Together these works provide a succinct and certain method for growing closer to God and enjoying greater and more lasting peace and [...]



    5. Great book. A classic. My patron saint, Francis De Sales (the patron saint of writers) reportedly carried this book with him for 18 years because he consulted it so often.


    6. If you want to know your enemyd don't mind realizing some of your greatest battles are coming from withinen read on.The Spiritual Combat has been changing lives for so many years.d still is today. Before reading this I had heard so much about it. Although I am not Roman CatholicI am a Christian, and looked very forward to benefiting spiritually from it's contents. This book has so greatly EXCEEDED my expectations is a book I will likely read many times over in my life time. Christ has granted br [...]


    7. This is a book that really gets you thinking. He pulls no punches about a real war going on between each of us and the Devil. And he explains details as to what the Devil does and tricks he uses. This is book everyone should read and see how it fits into his or her experiences. It includes information on how to deal with the Devil and beat him at his own game. But it is all deadly serious and treated that way.


    8. This book is a spiritual gem, the advice is practical and to the point. In this readers particular case very helpful due to the scruples and moments of spiritual aridity, in my prayer life I found myself almost spontaneously doing some of the very things suggested and thinking some of the very things written. I would recommend this for anyone seeking to grow in their prayer life, the author meets the reader anywhere along their progression in the practice of the spiritual life.


    9. Such an outstanding book on spiritual growth and the coinciding spiritual warfare. I can only hope that what I have read I will also remember and act upon.




    10. Short, helpful chapters jam-packed with advice on growing closer to Our Lord, and avoiding temptations. A spiritual classic for a reason! Read it!!






    11. great for beginning , sales carried it several yearsry practical. little christian against devil. i gonna win.he is devil i have a chance?



    12. There is truth to that saying that if you give in to things that are not good for you all the time, you know practically nothing about temptation. They always take you by surprise. (How did that 4th beer get into my car?!) This book, written in military language, is about being prepared for temptation. Dom Lorenzo, the sometime-disputed author, writes that the key to combat is to have a realistic understanding of your situation. If you distrust yourself (avoiding attitudes like "I would never do [...]


    13. Although this is a thin volume, it contains many wonderful encouragements and exhortations to fight against the many arrows of the devil. Too often we allow the things of life, like jobs, politics, personal pride, and carelessness to take away time from the true source of life and peace. To serve the Lord is a struggle against our baser wants and although we often become discouraged that we are never going to be good enough;however, our Lord is patient and loving beyond all measure and asks us t [...]


    14. Excellent book! i love it! Full of rich, deep, practical tips and advice to grow spiritually. Everybody could be saint, but we have to learn how to combat and defeat temptation. This is a book to read and consult continually. I am so motivated to begin practicing what I have read.
