Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ryan, a Roman Catholic priest who spent a year in India studying Hindu, Buddhist, and Islamic spiritual practice, has written a splendid book of practical spirituality, the result of genuine, faithful, and receptive interfaith dialog. Beautifully blending what he learned from those traditions with Christianity, Ryan provides a guide to holistic living, emphasizing the importance of intimate friendship, sabbath time, play and exercise, contemplation, fasting, and service. He proposes a ``life in which all that we do comes from the center where we are anchored in God'' and are attentive to the Spirit's demands. This is essential for seminary libraries; highly recommended for academic and public libraries.
