The Heart of the World
A foundational book, originally published in 1981, giving a vivid picture of the contemplative tradition and the meaning of the Incarnation, salvation, redemption, faith, interior silence, prayer, the Eucharist, the Ascension and others, from a contemplative perspective.
The Christian heritage is rich in contemplative wisdom, literature, and practices. As fresh and vibrant today as when it was first published, this classic book is essential to a deeper understanding of the spiritual center of Christianity.
It is especially written for those who, while benefiting from a spiritual practice in one of the other world religions, want to preserve or renew their fundamental commitment to Christianity.
