Reviews

""The leader within the Catholic world in the task of recovering our Christian contemplative heritage."-Ewert H. Cousins, general editor, World Spirituality: An Encyclopedic History of the Religious Quest " --Blurb from reviewer

""My mother is a self-proclaimed 'soul shopper' from way back. We started going to St Benedict's Monastery in Snowmass when I was 7 years old. Several years later, Keating became a St. Benedict's monk. He developed centering prayer, which is a lot like meditation and what this book is about. He says that meditation (or centering prayer) is a way of reducing the obstacles to the development of grace. I can sit for only five to ten minutes. It's very hard for me. Still, when I get in trouble, it shifts my perspective. As they say, we don't pray to change our circumstances; we pray to change ourselves."-Felicity Huffman's Bookshelf in "Oprah's Books" " --Blurb from reviewer
