About this Item

In one of his earlier works, "Captive Flames" James McCaffrey, OCD explored the teachings of the Carmelite saints and viewed it in the light of the Scriptures, showing it to be rooted in the word of God. In this new book he takes a different although complementary approach, viewing biblical themes in the light of Carmelite teachings. In "Infinite Horizons", the author examines themes from Scripture relating to the spiritual life: prayer including the example of Mary and the priestly prayer of Jesus; the mystery of human suffering; and prayer with the Holy Spirit. There is also a useful introduction to "lectio divina", with guidelines for practising it individually or in a group. All this is viewed "through Carmelite Eyes": not just through those of the author, but primarily those of five major Carmelite saints - Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Therese of Lisieux, Elizabeth of the Trinity and Edith Stein - whose lives and writings contain valuable insights which can enhance our understanding of Scripture. This book helps us engage with the Bible in a profound and meaningful way: to enter into the mystery of God, as revealed in his word, and to translate it into our lives, with the example of the Carmelite saints and under the action of the Holy Spirit. As the author writes: "The Spirit breathes where it wills" - led by the Spirit, each of us travels a secret path to God. James McCaffrey, OCD is Director of Teresian Press and Editor of "Mount Carmel: A review of the spiritual life". He is an experienced speaker on Carmelite spirituality and Scriptures, and is the author of numerous publications, including "Biblical Prayer Journey in the Holy Land", "The Carmelite Charism: Exploring the Biblical Roots" "Captive Flames: A Biblical Reading of the Carmelite saints" and "Prayer - The Heart of the Gospels". 229 pages Shipping costs are based on the matrix proposed by AbeBooks and are quoted at the maximum level.
