Deep Conversion, Deep Prayer

With temperatures around 105 in my area (So. Cal) I was able to justify spending a little more time at my local air conditioned Borders store.

So with a Tazo Giant Peach Ice Tea, an over stuffed reading chair and a few choice selections from the shelves, I spent the afternoon in a cool air conditioned state.

I found this great book by Fr. Tomas Dubay, S.M. entitled 'Deep Conversion Deep Prayer', published by Ignatius Press.

The books' back cover says it all:

"In this new book, he responds to the call by both Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI to help believers and all those interested in spirituality developing a deeper prayer life and union with God."

This book was so good I just couldn't put it down..... so I bought it.

Fr. Thomas Dubay is an expert on the teachings and writings of Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross and being the retreat master that he is, his explanation of the deeper prayer life and how to attain it is kept simple yet packed with insightful daily examples. It's an easy read and not in a over-my-head format.
Check it out...

It's only 122 pages long but It's one for the personal library
