The strength, the attraction of The Way is largely due to the fact that it is based on real, living experience, being the fruit of the author's work as a priest which began in 1925. The book appeared first in 1934 under the title Consideraciones Espirituales and later (in 1939) received its definitive title, after being greatly expanded. Over the years, more than four and half million copies have been sold, in 45 different languages.

On of the main attractions of the book is its direct, conversational style, its personal and deeply human character. As a reviewer in L'Osservatore Romano put it: "Msgr. Escriva de Balaguer has written something more than a masterpiece; he has written straight from the heart, and straight to the heart go the short paragraphs which make up The Way."
