Rate this book
Life demands so much of us. From the moment we open our eyes till the moment we go to sleep, we're pulled in multiple directions and besieged with the white noise of a busy, busy world. We find ourselves worried and upset about many things. But only one thing is needed. In Seeking Spiritual Intimacy Glenn Myers introduces us to the Beguines, a network of faith communities in Medieval Europe, where women organized their world around the one thing needed--a simple life with Christ at the center. Here you'll learn from the insights of wise women of faith who, from their modest homes and quiet communities, revitalized the faith of a continent.

Who knew? An entire slice of history opened up to me, reading this book. Medieval woman (a.k.a., the Beguines, gathered in clusters in Europe, supporting each other and helping those less fortunate in their communities. Fascinating read.

I greatly enjoyed this book and used it as my daily devotional. The author, Myers, does an excellent job combining history, devotional, and application in each chapter. This book focuses on the Beguines - godly women of the Middle Ages that lived devoted to God in communities throughout Germany and Belgium. The devotional aspect of this book mixed scripture, excerpts from the writings of a few notable women in the Beguine communities and themes centered on spiritual intimacy with the Lord, community and service to others. The application components came at the end of each chapter with questions calling for the reader to search their hearts and reflect deeply. Tasks are also given that allow the reader to explore various spiritual pathways for contemplation using the arts. I highly recommend this book. It is excellent for private devotional reading as well as a study for a small group setting.
