Publisher's Description

The Benedictine monk John Main is acclaimed as one of the great spiritual teachers of the 20th century, restoring to the Church its historic contemplative dimension and opening up the monastic tradition to men and women living in the world. His teachings still continue to lead people in the way of silence, stillness and simplicity which are so much needed in our modern world.

Here he opens up deeper insights into the kind of prayer that enables us to bring the whole of our being to God, and to let the power released into the world by the life, death and resurrection of Jesus flow through our hearts and into the world.

Author Bio

John Main osb founded an open Benedictine community in Montreal from which sprang the World Community for Christian Meditation which today has over 100,000 members in 114 countries.

    Do NOT read this book! The type of meditation he promotes is not biblical. The biblical definition for meditation is to think on and involve the mind. This is the exact opposite of what this book wants the reader to do. Biblical contemplation is similar. It means to study, think on, involve the mind. Again, the exact opposite of what this book is promoting. This author is promoting an unbiblical approach to prayer that is spirituall very dangerous. Avoid!

    This is one of my favortite books, and deals with many of the problems people have with prayer. It helped me at the time to discover and be open to a faith that is not about "making my own efforts to beleive" or getting a "spiritual high"- prayer to Main, was aboput communion and intamacy with God with and through Jesus the guide. John Main insisted that part of the journey of faith was to discover the Truths of the Gospel from our own experience. And I have found that Jesus's parables do take on a new and intimate dimension. I would not have stayed a Christian without people like John Main. There are many forms of prayer that fit Jesus's teachings on prayer in the sermon of the mount and elsewhere to "not go babbling on as the heathen do" because "they think they will be heard by many words" , and so many others, esp. the teaching in the Lord's Prayer, & the "inner room", and so forth. It is often delt with in the context of stumbling blocks about prayer, faith, etc. Here is the contents:1. Making progress, 2.The Conciousness of Jesus , 3. Who is at the Center? ,4.From Idea to Commitment 5. His Time, His Prayer, 6. The Universal Christ 7.Making nothing happen, 8. The Glory of Christ,9. The unlearning of Prayer, 10. The silence of Love 11. An ordinary thing, 12. Faith's Transcendence 13. The gift of Uniqueness, 14. I am as I am, 15. Dropping the Anchor, 16. Truth of the Spirit17. Belief and FaithHope ya gain form it!
