Rooting the message of the Gospel in present-day living.
A French priest and theologian, Michel Quoist (1918–97) leapt to prominence in the 1960s with his ground-breaking collection of prayers and meditations, Prayers of Life. Quoist gained a worldwide following with his innovative approach to prayer, which is rooted in the modern world and in the thoughts and feelings that define our everyday experiences.
Publishing twelve books over a forty-year career consolidated his reputation as one of the most powerful Christian writers of his time. His work is still widely read, having been translated into twenty-seven languages.
