Benignus begins his book,”I too regret that it took me so many years to find the gold of silent prayer.  In the chapters that follow I shall try to share what, with the help of my teachers, I have found at the heart of silence.”  Let me share the gold that I found within this short but powerful book.

Augustine of Hippo

Beautiful! A book I have read but will never consider finished. I want to keep going back to it.

This is a very good introduction to contemplative prayer for Christians; a good place to start. It's a good description of the blessings and benefits of this mode of prayer, essential to spiritual growth and communion with God.

Helpful book, carefully and economically written, to which I have read in a time which this book would be much useful for me.
Can be read by a variety of people since the prose and theology is quite simple, yet the deeper spiritual understanding may be a bit more advanced.
I enjoyed this book.
It is clear that this book had been written from wise experience, love and care.

There can be no question of escape from the situation;
We are many miles from land and there is no help near.
the one thing we can do is to withdraw, as it were,
into ourselves,to find the Christ within,
who is as Powerful to still the inner tempest
as He was to subdue the waves on the lake of Galilee.
I will continue to use this book have just completed an article
