Library Journal Review

Like John Wesley or Jean de Caussade before him, Catholic priest Arico provides the devout with a model and method for the attainment of a deeper spirituality; unlike them, he feels free to draw wisdom not only from Christian and ancient models but also from Sufism and Thomas Merton to show us how "God is calling us from our tombs" to the experience of "divine union." Arico's spirituality and warmth are profound, and his guide should be well received by most Christian readers. (c) Copyright 2010.
