Called "the man who turns religion into love," Charles de Foucauld followed a winding path to his heart's true desire. After early years of wrenching loss, rebelliousness, unbelief in God, reckless adventure, and the unbridled pursuit of pleasure, Charles experienced a profound conversion where he met God's mercy and love. Transformed, he devoted the remainder of his life to seeking "Nazareth," which ultimately meant following Jesus in humility and prayerful solidarity with the Muslim people of Algeria.
In this book, Cathy Wright gives us more than a compelling portrait of the new Blessed, offering keen insight into some of the major themes of his spirituality.
