Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Roth, an Episcopal priest who has written on hatha yoga and Christian prayer, employs the metaphor of a garden to explain spiritual growth in clear, simple, and yet profound ways. This metaphor allows her to reveal the dynamics of prayer, that is, its growth from small and apparently hidden and insignificant beginnings into a harvest. She discusses how the divine-human relationship is nourished, how it can be threatened, and what leads to its resurrection/rebirth. This book will inspire followers of many religious traditions who want to pray and who seek relationship to the mystery surrounding all life; it will reanimate those suffering spiritual dryness. Recommended for public and seminary libraries.
