Product description

Review

This book is a gladness to the heart that seeks God and a strengthener to the will. ... It is, in fact, a treasure. But it is not a treasure that can be easily put into practice. Parts of this book are very simple and obvious though also very difficult to achieve. Other parts are pure inspiration and open the eye to what the hard work of practice will enable us to see. On almost every page there are profound insights. ... Whether we are at the very beginning of a serious search of God, ... or whether time and grace have purified us over the years and washed our eyes so that we see with innocence and brightness, we can learn from this book.

Sister Wendy Beckett

I started to read then paused while I fetched my Bible; then a pen to underline wisdom. Then I prayed. Then I started to tell someone else all about it. It is like having an amazingly wise old uncle showing you how to live; to truly be alive. I wish it had been available years ago. It should be required reading.

Roy Godwin, Executive Director, The Ffald-y-Brenin Trust, and author of The Grace Outpouring

On every page, to facilitate growth towards wholeness and holiness, there s insight and wisdom, encouragement and challenge. ... Highly recommended!

Brian M. Noble, Emeritus Bishop of Shrewsbury

Reading this book is like being taken into a beautiful garden by a Renaissance man, who shows you how the different layers of reality revealed by music, art, poetry, psychology, nature, science can bring you into a place of awareness. I believe the aim of the book is enabling others to develop what the early Christian contemplatives called diorasis, a clear seeing into the reality of things and above all their createdness.

Shaun Lambert, Senior Minister, Stanmore Baptist Church; author of A Book of Sparks and Putting on the Wakeful One

This wonderful book is a fount of wisdom. It is beautifully written, in inspirational language, and is obviously the fruit of lived experience. It contains a wealth of uplifting quotations, gleaned from the wisdom of the ages. It covers the whole gamut of human existence, and our relationship to the divine. There is richness on every page for this reason, the book needs to be taken slowly and reflectively. It is indeed a treasure.

Fr Vincent O Hara OCD, Director, Avila Centre, Dublin

Good spiritual reading is sacramental. It takes us there. To where truth lies. It makes us present. It paves the way for and makes possible an encounter with the Lord. This book does just that. It is a goldmine. I have found nuggets for my own inner journey and for those whom I accompany on theirs. It will be a blessing for all into whose hands it happens to fall.

Canon John Udris, Spiritual Director, St Mary s College, Oscott

This work is to be relished, not rushed. Drawing on deep wells of experience and insight, Robin Daniels opens doors which enable us to see with artistic precision and radical freshness the wonder of God. With unique ability he speaks to the soul, bringing to consciousness the seemingly indescribable. It is less a book and more a journey which will not fail to transform your relationship with God, self and others.

Teresa Onions, Director of Pastoral Care UK for the Association of Christian Counsellors

I rate this one of the best contemporary books on spirituality.

Ronda Chervin, PhD, Professor of Philosophy at Holy Apostles College and Seminary, USA; author of spirituality books --Ronda Chervin
