This book was very very interesting. It's a must read for all those who are confused about yoga's relationship with religions other than Hinduism. Also, this book will be an eye opener for practicing Christians because it's written from the point of view of Christianity.

As a Christian yoga instructor this book is so valuable in understanding where my faith and yoga are compatible and incompatible. On the whole, it is very dense and difficult to get through. The introduction alone told me most of what I needed to know.

Some Christians may object to Christian Yoga, but I am finding it quite beneficial. His approach is straight-forward and a bit mystical.

An excellent book on how to safely (from a Christian and Roman Catholic perspective) embrace yoga.

“We do not have to look about us very far or for very long to realize the disastrous effects produced on the inner life of man by this age of noise. Spun about in the whirl of business, enslaved to countless technical inventions, man is severed from God and from the world of the spirit. Non in commotione Deus: God does not dwell in turbulence. To find him, there must be calm within; certain senses must be hushed. Tossed around as we are, if God wishes to speak to us, his voice, small and still, will be lost in the hubbub of our daily lives; the rackets and noise drowning our minds will prevent his penetration into that seclusion we call “heart”–the living witness of that life in us which is most sacred and most true: the life we call “inner” or “spiritual.” 3 likes
“God forbid that I should boast of being poor, gentle, and meek. But I am striving to attain these virtues. Every day the exercises, and indeed the whole ascetic discipline of my Yoga, make it easier for the grace of Christ to flow in me. I feel my hunger for God growing, and my thirst for righteousness, and my desire to be a Christian in the full strength of the word- to be for Christ, to be of Christ, without any half-measures of reservations.” 2 likes
