Tuesday Book Review – Opening to God

By | Aug 26, 2008

I’m starting a new feature this week, Tuesday book review. For now, these will be books that I have personally read and found useful, but I will be soliciting book reviews from others in the future. I also invite you all to comment with your own reviews of these books, whether positive or negative. The whole point here is to provide those discerning with information to help them on their path.

Today’s book selection is:

This was one of the very first books that was recommended to me when I first began discerning. I was still learning to pray and to be still with God.

The information here is very basic. It’s for those who are just starting out on their journey and need some grounding in basic techniques. I still have this book (although a much older version of it) and I still refer to it from time to time when I seem stumped. Sometimes when your prayer life just doesn’t seem to be working, going back to the basics helps.

The author, Fr. Thomas Green, is a Jesuit and a spiritual director. I’ve read a number of his books on prayer and discernment, and you’ll see them later in the Tuesday Book Review Series. I must say that I’ve never read one of his books that I didn’t find spiritually renewing and uplifting. While his approach to prayer doesn’t necessarily fit everyone, I do know that it helped me tremendously in learning to be quiet and be still with God.
