Really Healing . I love Gerald May.
Rod White
Great. Great. May's masterpiece, I think. It is one of those books that I fear I need to underline too much -- better just read it again! I am not sure I agree with his somewhat indeterminate centering on "love." But it doesn't bother me too much because I definitely know what he means.
Gerald May was a psychiatrist and also someone who was on a spiritual journey. I feel what I learned from his book is not to push and struggle so much, and to just be.... accept grace, accept help. That God is always present, and we can trust that.....
James Geddes
One of the finest books I've ever read. May discusses the dynamics of love and efficiency
in a culture that often gets it wrong.
A clear, simple approach to living the spiritual life.
Most important book on prayer in my library.
A worthwhile but tedious book that would have benefitted enormously by a thorough editing. There was too much when the essence of the book required less.
