Reviews

"Not a book to be read, but a book to be savored. Beautifully structured, it leads us through twelve cycles to the very heart of prayer. Our companions along the way are the great voices of the Christian tradition, past and present, some well-known and some new acquaintances. Each page, indeed paragraph, invites lingering and prayerful pondering."-Margaret Guenther, author of The Practice of Prayer

"Lorraine Kisly has cast her net far and wide, and the catch is heavy, but the boat isn't swamped. A wonderful generosity of spirit animates this anthology."-John Wilson, editor, Christianity Today

"Again and again, the same peace, the same stillness, the same quality of focused attention. Even the skeptical reader begins to believe that they are not talking about nothing, these voices so widely scattered in place and time. As for the bold reader, she begins to consider trying it."-Jack Miles, author of God: A Biography
