Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Since the publication of Centering Prayer, the meditative technique it described has gained wide popularity.  Here Pennington shares testimonies of practitioners, updates guidelines (slightly modified over their first formulation), offers theological reflection in the context of Merton, and closes with thoughts on teaching others.  Aimed at a broader readership thatn Centering Prayer, this title is clearly designed to tap into the burgeoning interest in this form of Christian meditation."
Library Journal

"In his newest book, the author reminds us that centering prayer is not the only or necessarily the best way to pray.  It is, for him, a gift; and he speaks more comfortably of 'renewal of prayer' than of the conventional 'saying prayers.'  Prayer is experience rather than language; prayer connects us with the larger mysteries of life and the universe...Newcomers will find here clear, unveiled language; old-timers in need of a refresher course will indeed be refreshed."
The Living Church

"This book is for both the experienced pray-er and the beginner.  In addition to practical suggestions, the book also situates 'centering' within Catholic theology.  The language of the book is easy, not technical.  This might be a good aid for Advent to help catechists slow down and focus on the Incarnation."
