Seeking the Beloved: A Prayer Journey with St. John of Crossby Wayne Simsic
Prayer is not just time set aside for God or the use of certain techniques-it is primarily an intimate relationship with God the Beloved. If we hunger for a prayer that is deeper than words and that we can bring to every part of our lives, no matter what we are doing, then we can turn to St. John of the Cross as our guide. Retreat master and author Wayne Simsic insists that while it's easy to write off this saint as an otherworldly ascetic and mystic, he was actually a down-to-earth and wise administrator, poet, and artist whose writings have great relevance for us today.
In this book, Simsic helps readers discover the gift of contemplative prayer as unfolded by this Carmelite saint, whose longing for a deep intimacy and union with God can become our longing as well.

This is a wonderful book for anyone who is trying to draw closer to God and to pray in a contemplative way. It is put in simple words and easy to understand and just a joy to read. I can say that it has been a big help to both my husband and myself in our individual prayer lives. In fact, we each have a copy and use it on a daily basis. If you have tried St. John of the Cross and/or St. Teresa of Avila and felt it was beyond you, and yet, you still yearn to draw closer in prayer to the Lord, this book will help you to do just that.
