A wise and very human monk once said to me that the things between God and us can be truthfully spoken about only in the way that friends talk to friends. I have tried to write down a partial record of such talk. I hope this book will help you to discover something more of the depths of your own self… in the image of God.
From the Preface
By profession I have many books to recommend on scripture, doctrine, history. This at last is one I can give to those who ask me about my faith, my struggle to pray, my attachment to the church. A redeeming presence illumines these quiet, intelligent and effortlessly authoritative reflections.
