2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Paul M. Beckingham on July 22 2006
Format: Paperback
Rob Des Cotes' small volume belies its immense value. As a follower of Jesus, this book will move you below the surface of the distractions of everyday life to arrive at places of deep serenity. These daily readings (it is hard to stop at only one a day!) move the reader to quietly contemplate the goodness of God in one's lived experience. The practice of prayer becomes a rich adventure of opening up oneself to all that God is.

The author begins with a key scripture verse and proceeds to offer an intruiging contemplative meditation upon it. He comes at the verse with a gentle depth and a refreshing unfolding of its meaning in the life of the believer. The telescope is reversed so that the reader sees more clearly from the detailed perspective that life in each of its parts is a gift and that the principal role of the believer is to receive it from God's generous hand as a mark of his astonishing kindness.

The author makes frequent and helpful references to the great writers in the Christian traditions of spirituality, including the Desert Fathers, John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, Meister Eckhart and contemporary writers such as James Houston and Ronald Rolheiser. Always biblical, engagingly conversational and gently didactic, Rob Des Cotes' volume will companion with you along your journey of faith as you seek to keep company with God.
