Probably his best yet
Subtitled, ‘An anxious evangelical finds peace with God through contemplative prayer’ - it exactly describes its audience. This is a wonderful book on making contemplative prayer attractive, and I loved it. There are so many books on prayer that talk about prayer, yet don't result in you actually praying. The best way I can commend this book to you is the fact I kept pausing to pray as I read it, because it made me want to pray right then and there.
There are two things that make this book stand out: the sense of God’s unconditional love that runs throughout the book, and how he distils wisdom from mystics like Richard Rohr and Thomas Merton to make them much more accessible for newcomers to contemplative prayer. There are some who just talk about God’s unconditional love, and then follow up with a load of rules. For me, the sense of God’s love came through in every word, and the experience of reading the book on spiritual disciplines was a restful and nourishing one. I love all of Cyzewski’s work, but this was probably his best so far. Highly recommended.
