Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0814633722, Paperback)

Nourished by liturgy and lectio divina, this book offers a transforming theological vision based on prayer and spiritual insight. As a Benedictine monk the author contemplates the sacramental mysteries of Scripture, Baptism, the Eucharist, the icon, mystical prayer, and the great feasts of the liturgical year, viewing them as privileged disclosure-zones where the Holy Spirit reveals God s presence and in¬vites us to be transformed into the likeness of Christ. The author s aim is to encourage a contemporary mystical spirituality based on the great sources of Christian revelation. Much of the book consists of reflections on the mysteries of Christ as they are celebrated in the liturgy. It is grounded in theological research yet written in a style accessible to non-specialists; ecumenical in inspiration, it draws largely from Orthodox and other Eastern Christian sources. Deeply com¬mitted to the post-Vatican II renewal of the Church, it aims to recover some of the ancient spiritual resources of monastic tradition so as to encourage a new vision of Christ as we meet him in his mysteries.
