Reviews

"A wonderfully clear explanation and a very practical guide."--Tom West, O.F.M., Ph.D., Associate Prof. of Pastoral Theology, The Franciscan School of Theology, Berkeley, CA. "This book lucidly shows us how much Christian insight meditation supports the purifying path to God and self-knowledge taught by the great Carmelite Christian contemplatives, John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila. Such detailed and practical wisdom, steeped in both personal experience and classical Christian and Buddhist spiritual writings, can be of great help to the serious meditator. I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking a serious contemplatively-oriented meditation practice aimed at a truer, freer life available to God's grace moment by moment."--Tilden Edwards, Founder and Senior Fellow, Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation
