Fr. Thomas Dubay spends several months every year giving conferences and retreats to religious, particularly to contemplative Carmelites. This book is the fruit of many years of his study and experience in spiritual direction, and in it he synthesizes the teachings on prayer of the two great doctors of the Church on prayer - St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila - and the teaching of Sacred Scripture. This is not for contemplatives alone, it is meant for every Christian and is based on the Gospel imperative of personal prayer and the call to holiness.
An outstanding book on prayer and the spiritual life written by one of the best spiritual directors of our time. Dubay synthesizes the teachings on prayer of the two great Doctors of the Church--St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila--and the teaching of Sacred Scripture.
