The Furrow is a wonderful purse or pocket-size book with 1000 points for meditation on prayer, work, pride, suffering and more.
The beautiful cover art is a detail from Landscape with the Fall of Icarus (ca 1558) by Peter Bruegel the elder.
The Furrow is the fruit of Monsignor Josemaria Escriva's interior life and of his experience with souls. The Founder of Opus Dei wrote it with the intention of encouraging personal prayer and making it easier.
Furrow is directed to the whole Christian person-body and soul, nature and grace- and not only to the mind. What appears in these pages is Christian life itself, in which-at Christ's pace-the divine and the human are interwoven, not confused and yet kept in perfect union.
