Open the Door 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

Open the Door is a book to be savored and "consumed" slowly to appreciate the fullness of its purpose: to lead you to your authentic self in God. Joyce Rupp includes precious gems from a wealth of authors that makes you want to go deeper into what wisdom is out there for the taking, learning and knowing. Read by yourself, it is a wonderful personal journey; read with a reading group or church group, it is a wonderful journey of sharing and growing together. A little daunting at first, perseverance reaps unlimited benefits.

Joyce takes the reader on a spiritual journey that is like being on a six week retreat without leaving home.
