Product Description

Life demands so much of us. From the moment we open our eyes till the moment we go to sleep, we're pulled in multiple directions and besieged with the white noise of a busy, busy world. We find ourselves worried and upset about many things. But only one thing is needed.

In Seeking Spiritual Intimacy Glenn Myers introduces us to the Beguines, a network of faith communities in Medieval Europe, where women organized their world around the one thing needed--a simple life with Christ at the center. Here you'll learn from the insights of wise women of faith who, from their modest homes and quiet communities, revitalized the faith of a continent.

Editorial Reviews

"More than a historical look at a now-obscure movement, this is an eye-opening, heart-pricking invitation to live deeply and conscientiously now."
"If you hunger for adventure, desire to draw closer to the heart of God, or long for a deeper connection with God and the people in your life, pick up Glenn Myers's Seeking Spiritual Intimacy. Written with the understanding of a scholar and the spiritual insight of someone that keeps company with God, this powerfully simple book offers practical guidance to spiritual pilgrims young and old."
"The desire for union with God is the perennial longing of the human heart. In Seeking Spiritual Intimacy, Glenn Myers takes us on a fascinating pilgrimage to the Middle Ages and shows us how the Beguines sought to express and satisfy this desire as they grappled with spiritual formation issues that are just as real for us as they were for these thirteenth-century women: faith, living in God's presence and love, community, prayer, death to self, and the struggles with trials. Myers's eminently practical and insightful book brings front and center a spiritual wisdom that rings with contemporary relevance."
