Adolphe Monod’s Living for the Hope of Glory has been one of the most influential Christian works I’ve read. Deeply affected by Monod’s story as well as the spiritual mindedness with which his writings are marked, I have returned to his writings time and time again. Most of Monod’s writings remain in French, though I recently discovered one that was translated into English in the mid-19th Century. You can read and download Monod’sÂ St. Paul: Five Discourses on Google Books. Thomas Peck, a great 19th Century Southern Presbyterian theologian, recommended Monod’s discourse on Fatalism out of this work. Enjoy!
