Reviews - What do customers think about Centering Prayer in Daily Life and Ministry?
A helpful, multi-faceted resource on Centering Prayer. Jul 8, 1998
Many of the articles in this text were published originally in the Christmas 1996 issue of the Sewanee Theological Review. If anyone asked me about Centering Prayer I always suggested they obtain a copy of this journal -- a popular issue which has long since sold out. I was very dismayed that these rich and helpful articles wouldn't be widely accessible for new practitioners of Centering Prayer. I was thrilled when I learned (from a visit to the this site.Com website) that these resources were now available in book form together with a few exceptional additions. This book is an ecumenical venture and is a wonderful starting place for a person who is interested in embarking on this form of prayer and spirituality. This book is simply a MUST for anyone who practices Centering Prayer or wants to learn more. The essays in this volume explore the different dimensions of Centering Prayer: historical, anecdotal, sacramental, practical (how to pray) and place this prayer form in the context of Community and Ministry. If you buy any book on Centering Prayer, this volume should be at the top of your list.
