Overview

When the Well Runs Dry: Prayers Beyond the Beginnings

"There comes a time," Jesuit spiritual director and author Thomas Green says, "when people deeply committed to prayer 'hit a wall.'" Stunned and discouraged, they find God distant and detached. This book offers encouraging and practical direction on the spiritual life from several of Christianity's classic teachers on prayer.

Fr. Green analyzes the nature of prayer, what blocks it, what supports it, and what will renew it, by presenting counsel from classic spiritual Christian teachers – such as Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross – and his own long and fruitful ministry as teacher and spiritual director. Comparing the watering of a garden to the renewal of a dry spiritual life, Green escorts those experiencing difficulty with prayer back to the knowing and inspired counsel of these classic Christian writers.
