How to Be Holy

Peter Kreeft
Ignatius Press, 2016
172 pages, paperback $16.95

French writer Léon Bloy once famously quipped: “Life, in the end, has only one tragedy: not to have been a saint.” That’s Kreeft’s jumping off point for his latest — and perhaps most important — book, subtitled First Steps in Becoming a Saint.

Kreeft demonstrates that striving toward holiness is the whole purpose of life. Using insights and experiences of saints and great spiritual writers, he shows what holiness is and how it can be achieved. He especially draws upon Abandonment to Divine Providence by Jean-Pierre de Caussade, SJ, who writes that the surest way toward spiritual growth is always to accept God’s merciful will.
