The book is divided into four parts, and further into chapters, concluding with an appendix detailing thoughts on methods of prayer. In the words of author Rev. Father De Lehen, S.J.:“This book is intended to put into the hands of Christian souls the proper means of preserving interior peace or, if lost, of regaining it.”“The Way of Interior Peace, by Rev. Father De Lehen, S.J., is regarded as an excellent book for priests, religious, and the laity who wish to serve God in peace of heart and mind. ... It is attractive by its clear, simple, concise style, adapted to the capacity of the learned and the unlearned.”—Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of BaltimoreTranslator’s Preface to the first German edition, 1870“The book which we now present to the pious souls of Germany has in France, and in a very short time, reached four editions. It justly merits so widespread a circulation- for it would be difficult to find another ascetical work suited to so many and various needs of the soul...”Part 1– Of Resignation to the Dispensations of Divine Providence... Resigning ourselves to God’s will delves into practical questions: Why does God take pleasure in seeing us suffer? Could He not make us good and perfect without first plunging us into pain and misery?Part 2– True Piety, the Indispensable Foundation of Inner Peace...Patience with Self, the second requisite of true piety and peace of soulPart 3– Of the Means for Preserving Peace...Why discouragement occasions so much harm- to be wanting in confidence is to be wanting in faithPart 4– Of Scruples...Universal remedies for scruples- scruples that make us see in everything a punishment from GodAppendix– ...Various methods of prayer–meditation, contemplation, spiritual reading, examination of conscience, a retreat, preparation for death
