9781594710711: Opening to God: A Guide to Prayer

Often, people feel drawn to prayer but are timid and unsure about how to pray. For over thirty years, this book has demystified prayer for countless thousands. Friendly and inviting, Opening to God, now available in a revised, updated edition, explains what prayer is all about, then turns to techniques that ready the soul to encounter God. Mining his rich experiences as a Jesuit missionary and spiritual director, Thomas Green, S.J., shakes away the cobwebs and banishes stodgy assumptions about spiritual life that is fed by the practice of prayer. A must-have resource, both for beginners and practiced 'pray-ers' who want to cultivate a more meaningful prayer experience.

Product Description:

Missionary-priest and educator, Father Thomas Green, draws on his cross-cultural experience, his acquaintance with the great spiritual figures of Church history, and his own life as a "pray-er" to instruct on the subject of prayer.

Thomas H. Green, S.J., (1932–2009), received his training in philosophy and theology at Bellarmine College, Plattsburgh, New York, and Woodstock College, Maryland, and earned advanced degrees in education and physics from Fordham University, and a doctorate in the philosophy of science from the University of Notre Dame under the great Irish mentor Father Ernan McMullin. Green served as the spiritual director of San Jose Seminary, Manila, Philippines, and professor of philosophy and theology at Ateneo de Manila University.
