What appears in these pages is Christian life itself, in which - at Christ's pace - the divine and the human are interwoven, not confused, and yet kept in perfect union.
Like The Way, Furrow is the fruit of St Josemaria's interior life and experience with souls. It presents an attractive Christian vision of the human virtues. "Furrow is directed to the whole Christian person - body and soul, nature and grace," wrote Bishop Alvaro del Portillo in the foreword of the book.
St Josemaria had hoped to make a final revision of the book before he died, but didn't have time to do so. The first edition appeared in 1986. Since then, over half a million copies have been printed in many languages.
