A guidebook to help Christ-followers begin to explore a deeper, closer and fuller walk with God through the ancient practices of contemplation (waiting on God in silent, wordless prayer), lectio divina (scripture meditation), and other aspects of contemplative spirituality. The book also samples the tremendous contributions of contemplative writers from every century of the Christian faith. More
My purpose in writing this book is to provide a fairly concise yet thorough guidebook to help other Christ-followers discover and begin to explore contemplation and all aspects of contemplative spirituality.
Contemplation, or ancient Christian meditative prayer, has been used throughout Christian history to help crucify the old nature and enable Christ-followers to live in a constant openness to God's presence and life within.
"Only the crucified are truly alive. There's no resurrection until we've been to the Cross. Only the crucified abundantly live. God is our everything and all else is loss."
Contemplative spirituality is a gift of God that can help set a lukewarm, compromising Christian on fire for God and help such people (people like me) become more fully surrendered to God.
