In the eyes of God the human soul is a jewel of infinite worth, of more value than the whole world with all its splendor and majesty. But what do we think of the soul so highly prized by God? What do we know of our own soul?
The Human Soul, Abbot Vonier's first and most popular book, was written to open the eyes of readers to the tremendous frontiers of their true country: the immortal soul. Written with "a youthful freshness and vigor," it is a work of rare inspiration, "such as to make one hold one's breath at the beauty and grandeur of what we so lightly, without thought, call our soul."
"This book shows us where true happiness lies, and how to gain it. It is an important book, a powerful book. Tolle et lege. Read on."
