Unity in the Spirit through contemplative prayer Aug 20, 2007
This collection of essays, written to honor the life and work of Quaker contemplative, Douglas V. Steere, brings together authors from several Christian traditions to explore ecumenical engagement grounded in contemplative Christian spirituality. This work is a valuable contribution toward Protestant openness to contemplative spirituality and Catholic appreciation of contemplative streams within Protestantism. Most of the Protestant contributors are Episcopalians, a tradition long informed by Christian, especially British, mysticism. Yet there are contributions from Baptist and Methodist authors here too. Contributors include Tilden Edwards, E. Glenn Hinson, Morton T. Kelsey, Doris Donnelly and John S. Mogabgab, Jean Leclercq OSB, Edward Farrell and Basil Pennington OCSO.
