This work, reprinted many times over since its appearance in 1920, both instructs and ennobles. It treats of virtually every aspect of the life of the mind and the cultivation of the virtues and habits of life that are its prerequisites. Insofar, it instructs. Yet it does so in a manner that unfailingly awakens high aspiration. ''The life of study,'' writes Sertillanges, ''pays, it pays richly; but it exacts an initial outlay that few are capable of. The athletes of the mind, like those of the playing field, must be prepared for privations, long training, a sometimes superhuman tenacity. We must give ourselves from the heart, if truth is to give itself to us. Truth serves only its slave.'' This book is nothing less than an enchiridion for those who would pledge fealty to this most generous of taskmasters, and in so doing think God's thoughts after Him.

An Eighth Day View:

A reprint of Sertillanges's classic reflection on the intellectual life.
