Product Description

Review

"Every morning and evening these daily readings offer gentle encouragement and wise inspiration."-Laurence Freeman"I do not know of any better method of meditation leading to the experience of the love of God in Christ than that of John Main."-Bede Griffiths"Father John does more than recall isolated gems of wisdom; he reminds us of our own ancient and unbroken tradition of meditation."-Robert Kiely, Professor of English Literature, Harvard University

About the Author

John Main (1926-1982) was a Benedictine mond whom Bede Griffiths once acclaimed "the best spiritual guide in the church today." His work continues to guide many to deeper spirituality and also to inspire inter-religious dialogue. Paul Harris is a journalist and teacher, and former Director of the Christian Meditation Centre in London.

Format: Paperback
Father John Main (1926-1982) was an Irish Benedictine monk raised in England who was instrumental in renewing interest in the living tradition of Christian Meditation. His work is being carried on by his friend and successor, Father Laurence Freeman (who provides the introduction to this book). It is edited by Paul Harris (also one of the founding members of the World Community for Christian Meditation, a non-profit organization based on the teachings of Father John). It consists of 365 readings--usually about 2-3 paragraphs in length--from the many books and lectures of Father John. These readings can be used devotionally or for basic instruction on the method recommended by Father John for Christian meditation, which is based on the repetition of the mantra [sacred word] "Maranatha"--which means, translated from the ancient Semitic language of Aramaic, "Come, Lord." The only reservation I would express is that, as rich and varied as these selections are, seekers would perhaps be more completely served in taking up his full published works, e.g. WORD INTO SILENCE. Fortunately for us, his writings are coming back into print (newly published by Continuum). This book is a fine introduction to the thought and teachings of Father John Main. It does come highly recommended.

Experiencing the reality that is God doesn’t come from dogma, rules and regulations.

This collection of John Main’s work, “Silence and Stillness in Every Season” edited by Paul Harris with a foreword by Laurence Freeman provides a wonderful and living backdrop to meditation in the tradition of the fathers of the early Christian church.

This book captures the essence of John Main and has the potential to change lives. It is a life journey that is as simple as saying one’s daily mantra. However, nothing is as simple as it seems. What a journey to find God!

I knew about the book prior to ordering it, however, I would recommend it to anyone interested in Christian meditation. I was delighted with the condition of the book.

Good when I feel like a regime of meditating every day, but when I'm very busy and don't have the time it feels too rigid a format to follow comfortably.
