Reviews - What do our customers think?
Warmed over Freudianism....  Apr 23, 2007
This book is just another in a series of attempts to reconcile Freudian psychology with the Christian spiritual message. Unfortunately, the two are incompatible! The project is absolutely exhausted. I got more of a sense of the insecurity of the author than of the greatness of God. Readers earnestly seeking to improve their prayer life might try Peter Kreeft's Prayer for Beginners. Also, in response to Freudianism, anything by Vickt Frankl.
Every word is aimed at that relationship...  Aug 12, 2004
This is the kind of book that makes you wish to underline or highlight every sentence. It has no dead spots. While the book encourages resting in God's presence as a form of prayer, it is not a "restful" or "easy" book, but one that demands attention. It rewards that attention not with pat answers about the nature of God, but with an overarching vision of God as Love, and with ideas--but not demands--on how we can experience that Love as a presence infusing our lives. The book was loaned to me by my own Director, and I anticipate getting my own copy. There is no way you can get it all at once: if you can do that, you are either St. Ignatius himself or have a photographic memory and perfect understanding. Fr. Barry's work bears restudy and should be taken up again at intervals so we may remind ourselves of the God whom we not only serve, but in whose arms we rest.
GOD and YOU  Jul 20, 2003
A short book written by an experienced (Jesuit) pastoral psychologist on the topic of prayer. It came highly recommended by my Spiritual Director. Great for the person who is beginning to develop a "conscious" relationship with God through prayer. "Conscious" meaning being aware of the presence of God in our everyday lives. This practical book provides insights into understanding emotions and prayer, images of God and prayer and the effects of prayer as well as others. Simply written, but powerful and full of insight!
A Breakthru Book!  Sep 10, 2002
This is a very valuable approach to prayer. It helped me get deeper than the pre-scripted prayers that have become almost meaningless thru repetition. Most important, it showed me how to get past the boredom induced by reluctance to talk to God about my resentments and shortcomings.
a wonderful resrouce for anyone seeking to deepen their  Dec 6, 2001
prayer life. Fr. Barry has many years of experience as a spiritual director, and it all shines throguh in his writings. He is phenomenal, especiall for the fact that his writings are very down to earth and easy to understand.
