Review by MapleMystic
Though I am 50% through this book, I know I will immediately begin to re-read it once done. This book was a recommendation from the leader of a contemplative group I fellowship with out of Columbus, Ohio with an unoffical link to the Abby of Gethsemani in Kentucky. This book is an excellent resource for those who have just begun a journey into contemplative life and prayer (and I am told for those who are well on their way within the journey). It really amazes me how much discussion on contemplative life exist but not as much regarding taking the actual steps along the path. This book really bridges that gap.
