IN THE SINNER’S GUIDE, Venerable Louis de Granada proves himself a masterful spiritual director, showing how life in Christ is a beautiful way of life, worthy of all our efforts to pursue it. Numerous saints have enthusiastically recommended the works of this Dominican master of the spiritual life.

St. Teresa of Ávila credited The Sinner’s Guide with having converted more than a million people. The author, she concluded, was “a man given to the world by God for the great and universal good of souls.”

St. Charles Borromeo insisted that “no one has written books . . . of greater selection and profit than Fray Louis of Granada.”

St. Rose of Lima had his books always at hand and even used them to fight off the Devil.

St. Francis de Sales urged a bishop-elect to read Fray Louis’ works, beginning with The Sinner’s Guide, and to treat them as a second breviary.

Sts. John of the Cross, Peter of Alcántara, Vincent de Paul, and Louise de Marillac all counted Fray Louis among their favorite spiritual writers.

Pope Benedict XIII told him: “Your writings . . . have benefited your fellow creatures more than if you had given sight to the blind and raised the dead to life.”
In this book, the author answers these and other critical questions:

• Why should I serve God?
• What privileges belong to those who practice virtue?
• What practical remedies can I use to overcome vices?
• What are my specific duties to God, my neighbor, and myself?
• Why is courage so important in learning to practice virtue?

For mastery of subject, command of Scripture, and impact on the heart and mind, no book surpasses The Sinner’s Guide.

Venerable Louis of Granada (1504–1588) was a Spanish Dominican theologian, preacher, and spiritual writer. His 49 works have been translated into 25 languages and published in 6,000 editions.

About The Author
The Venerable Louis of Granada was born at Granada, Spain to poor descent in 1505. When he was nineteen, he became a Dominican for the convent of Santa Cruz, and subsequently served quite successfully as a preacher for forty years. He was a holy, learned, and wise man who published various works on Scripture, ethics, dogma, and Church history throughout his lifetime. His famous Sinner's Guide was originally published in 1555, and is now regarded as a spiritual classic. Also the author of The Book of Prayer and Meditation, he lived to be eighty-four years old. Louis died on the thirty-first of December, 1588, at Portugal.
