Overview

This new edition brings back into print a pioneering work that sold almost 70,000 copies in its first edition. In this comprehensive guide to contemplative prayer, George Maloney, S.J. a leading exponent of the Eastern spiritual tradition in the decades after Vatican II, opens up this tradition of prayer—in particular the Jesus Prayer—to Western Christians in a clear and practical manner.
