Reviews - What do customers think about Meditation and Contemplation: An Ignatian Guide to Prayer with Scripture (Crossroad Book)?

Interesting and exciting  Feb 25, 2010
I didn't know what to expect when I ordered this book. It was an easy read. I found the experiences shared by those who used this method of meditation to be very helpful. I am a huge fan of Guided Meditation and this seems to offer further means of spiritual growth. I am sharing the book with a friend right now, so we can discuss it and give it a try. It really sounds exciting.
 
A practical and reliable spiritual guide  Aug 18, 2008
This volume is a practical, experience-based guide to the twin Ignatian practices of meditation and contemplation. Distilling from years of spiritual direction and retreat work, and drawing freely from the insights of well-known figures in the Catholic mystical tradition, Fr. Gallagher walks the reader through the various moments in Ignatian spirituality. The use of actual stories helps keep the presentation easy to understand and shows how, in practice, a person of prayer will often move gently from one stage of reflection to another, depending on the needs of the heart.

Readers of the author's other works will find this one closest in style to his Examen Prayer(The Examen Prayer: Ignatian Wisdom for Our Lives Today), with its weaving together of experience and Ignatian theory, though Meditation and Contemplation proves to be even more accessible than that volume. As well, its treatment of various forms of spirituality, including the often ignored colloquy, expands upon the single-topic focus of the earlier book.

Those with little experience in the life of prayer might wish to start with Fr. Gallagher's Examen Prayer, which outlines a practice remarkably easy to begin and endlessly varied in its fruits. Those who already have some experience but are wishing to move deeper in their practice, including Catholic practice related to daily and weekly Mass and the reading of scripture, would find many of the lessons in this volume easy to apply to their lives, as well as gaining reassurance when, as often happens, their own experiences follow patterns so well identified and articulated by Ignatius centuries ago.
