Expansive Prayer: Reflections for All Seasons
Paulist Press, 2004 - 82 pagina's
In this deeply thoughtful, innovative work longtime college and high school teacher draws on his many years' experience in leading prayer to fashion a different kind of prayer took. For it he has selected various scriptural passages and applied them to the four seasons of the calendar year. Based loosely on an Ignatian model of meditation, he provides the reader with a brief introduction before presenting a passage from Scripture and a reflection to follow. The introduction guides us into the world of scripture and the reflection helps us to ponder the relevance of the passage in our own lives. The author embraces a current practical view of spirituality that is meant to be evocative of spiritual issues. He will make you think as he helps you pray.
