Into the Silent Land
I have been reading and praying over Martin Laird's Into the Silent Land: A Guide to the Christian Practice of Contemplation. I like it and am adding it to our list of spiritual books on the right side of my blog. It is true that I am not yet past the second Chapter of this book, but it is the kind of book that makes one stop and contemplate and is helpful in that way. Martin Laird is an Augustinian and a professor at Villanova University. This book was published by Oxford University Press in 2006 but I only recently heard of it. I suspect that anyone who does Centering Prayer or is drawn to contemplative silence would find the book very useful.
