Most widely held works by John Gerard
Unseen warfare, being the spiritual combat and Path to paradise as edited by Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain and revised by Theophan the Recluse by Lorenzo Scupoli( )

6 editions published between 1598 and 2011 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Combat is a practical manual of living. At first it teaches that the sense of life is incessant fighting against egoistic longings and replacing them with sacrifice and charity. The one who does not do this loses, and suffers in Hell; the one who does it, trusting not in his own, but God's power, triumphs and is happy in Heaven. The work of Scupoli analyses various usual situations and advises how to cope with them, preserving a pure conscience and improving virtue. It emphasizes also the boundless goodness of God, which is the cause of all good. What is bad originates from the human who rebels against God. -- Amazon.com

"John Gerard's autobiography gives us 'a finer and fuller account ... than any other document' of the hazardous years between the Armada and the Gunpowder Plot, when he was working as a priest in England. Written in Latin in 1609, it contains vivid descriptions of priest-hunts and hiding-places, of his torture and escape, of secret letters written in orange juice, of Mass said in great houses and in prisons, and of encounters with courtiers, ladies, Protestant divines and lords of the Privy Council."--P. [4] of cover
