 General Description:

"This is not a new hook on prayer to read or to meditate, nor is it a book of prayers to recite. It is a guide for praying. "Characteristic aspects of prayer are re-examined, taken up again today with a sense of new-found joy: the immediate encounter with God and the awareness that the Spirit prays within us; listening to the Word that it may be rooted in the heart, and the Eucharistic sign as the reminder of a Presence; prayer's link with life and the contemplative attitude; prayer as a meeting with the Father `in secret' and the community which welcomes the risen Christ when it gathers together in his name; silent adoration and the role of the body, which we would be tempted to consider an obstacle in seeking God; the function of a sacred image or icon and the prayer of the name placed on our lips, in our mind and in our heart."(from the Introduction)

Born in Carrara, Italy in 1937, Antonio Gentili, a Barnabite Father, contributes to various magazines on the topic of spirituality. His interests and activity have centered in a particular way on meditation. He has edited an Italian edition of some famous works on mysticism, including the Cloud of Unknowing by an anonymous English author, and Meditations by E La Combe. He is attentive to the contributions which the traditions of the near and far East can make to Christian meditation. Fr. Gentili is also the author of several popular Italian titles, inclidingDio eel silenzio (1989) and Dentro it mistero (1993).

Presently Fr. Gentili resides at the Centro Studi of the Barnabite Fathers in Rome. He is a member of the general council of his Congregation, and directs the two series, Rediscover the Centerand Within the Mystery, published by Editrice Ancora.
