This book will take more than one reading to absorb its richness. Personal illustrations, an abundance of thought-provoking quotes, and memorable object lessons make this a book that may become a contemporary classic.
"A spirit of ecumenism informs Ford's gracefully written guide to thoughtful prayer and attentiveness to God's voice."
. . . A wonderfully compelling invitation to a life of prayer . . . Ford know how to share the "hours" with witful intelligence, charm and winsome conviction. This delightfully well-written book [will] provide any group with a host of insights, provocations, and layered viewpoints for discussion.
This book is special. It stretches the soul and makes "everything a prayer."
Filled with examples of those who "paid attention," Ford's evangelical bona fides are unquestionable and well worth reading.
Using the richt tradition of praying the hours, Ford will walk with you, helping you pay attention to God's work in you and around you throughout each day and in different seasons of your life.
The Attentive Life chronicles [Ford's] new desire to "be attentive" and more deeply nurture a viable set of practices that facilitate such spiritual intimacy with God. The Attentive Life is a perfect example of the kinds of things the Formatio line is about. We highly recommend it.
"Those who appreciate contemplative, gentle, insightful focus into the spiritual life will enjoy this partly autobiographical work."
"Ford expresses in an almost poetic manner the peace that comes with the continual observation of and attentiveness to the presence of God."
"[A] distinctly Protestant addition to the tradition of monastic spirituality."
