Item description for Drinking From A Dry Well by Thomas Green...

Spurred on by the need to consider the mystery of prayer, Thomas H. Green, S.J., combines the insights of two experts he knows well - John of the Cross and Ignatius Loyola. The favorite themes of these two saints repeatedly emerge in this excellant commentary on the contemporary experience of the spiritual life: prayer as "loving attentiveness," the dark nights of sense and spirit, seeing by faith, the beauty and the cost of "loving service," and laboring with Christ. He also offers consolation and advice for when prayer and action seem to dry up and become useless. The result, a felicitous merging of contemplation and action, is must reading for those who pray amidst the clamor of the contemporary world.

Publishers Description
Fr. Green returns to the "dry well" to explore the dryness and help readers discover how to live gracefully while "drinking from a dry well of prayer."

Reviews - What do customers think about Drinking From A Dry Well?

Encouragement for the journey  Oct 31, 2002
Thomas Green has spent his life teaching and inspiring others, and this book is another that will help many. It emphasizes that both prayer and action are necessary to our inner growth, but without being dogmatic about any of it. As a feeble student of John of the Cross, I find Green's clarification of his teachings very illuminating, but he makes Ignatius of Loyola appealing, too. Green obviously lives what he is writing about, and makes it a personal, friendly lesson, one much easier to digest than either author alone.
Each of Thomas Green's books is on a different aspect of the spiritual journey, and most people will be able to find guidance in one or another of them. This one is for those farther along the path of prayer.

review by Janet Knori, author of Awakening in God

Excellent guide to advanced stages of the spiritual life.  Sep 20, 1998
Fr.Thomas Green eloquently explores the mystery of prayer and in particular the kind of difficulties the soul encounters as it advances farther into "the dark night of sense and spirit". Drawing on the contemplative theology of St. John of the Cross and the active theology of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Fr. Green helps the contemporary reader find practical ways of surviving and surmounting the inevitable dryness and loss of zeal which inevitably develop in advanced stages of the spiritual life. I find particularly reassuring Fr. Green's thesis that our inner transformation and spiritual development continue to occur, under God's loving guidance, even when we seem to experience nothing spiritually.
