An Absolutely Wonderful Book

Gentle Readers: 

Run, do not walk, to your nearest bookstore and order Contemplative Prayer: A Theology for the Twenty-First Century (9781610875995) by James P. Danaher. 

It is one of the best books on this subject I've read for a long, long time, not only because there is such resonance with my own research (!!!) but also because of its clarity, lucidity and light. It's like watching the sun play on a prism The author does use the word 'mystic', but in such a way that it is very clear that he does not mean 'experience'. 

Now I'm going to look for some of his other books as well.

Dear Maggi
