Charles de Foucauld
Writings selected with an introduction by Robert Ellsberg
Modern Spiritual Masters series
Charles de Foucauld sought to proclaim the gospel not simply by his words but by his life. Living among the Muslim poor of Algeria, he sought to be a 'universal brother', a witness to the love of God for all people. Though at the time of his violent death he had attracted no followers, his story later inspired the foundation of the Little Brothers and the Little Sisters of Jesus.
This volume offers a poignant entry into the heart of a modern mystic and martyr.
