    An unknown find that speaks for the ages

    I came across this nondescript book while on spiritual retreat. I had arrived to find some peace - to learn what it is to have peace within the rushed life of New York City. The book is written in a style that is readable and understandable. More importantly, the suggestions provided by the author are DOABLE. In fact, the book's priceless value lies in its instant application. However, it challenged me to open myself up, to put my guard down. The author outlines the pitfalls a newcomer to meditation will encounter. Equally, he introduces the reader to a forgotten tradition founded in the early Church. His model for meditation is based on that of St. Teresa de Avila, the 16th c. Spanish saint and a 'Doctor of the Church.' Each chapter grounds the reader on an important distinction, key to this real-time meditation, or a particular step of the few that are necessary. Indeed, few of them are needed for success in meditation. And as the title suggests, meditation is a conversation- a conversation with Christ. I have found incredible peace in the most unlikely places, whether on a mountaintop, in a foreign country, or just prior to a medical school exam. As Rohrbach recommends, meditation is a practice; it should be exercised daily. Of course one end is peace; another is discovering with time that one is truly never alone, as a friendship develops for a lifetime - and for eternity.

    Very helpful

    This book has given me some basic tools for improving my prayer life. The most important advice is to persevere and not to give up because having a quiet time with the Lord does not happen easily, but keeping at it will bring rich blessings. A great tool for those that are seeking more.
