Editorial Reviews

Review

"...is clear about ways to keep our committment to prayer even when our experiences are not as we imagined" -- Buena Vista Resource Page

"He [Thibodeaux] presents both the practicalities and the mysteries of prayer with clarity, humor and easy-to-understand examples." --
Catholic Parent, March/April 2002

Thibodeaux guides the lay reader through contemplative prayer, its evolution, its difficulties and its ultimate goal. --
Theology Digest, Winter 2001

Thibodeaux’s easygoing style is a genuine help. It’s an appetizing mixture: personal anecdotes, inviting exercises, and solid instruction. --
Emilie Griffin

From the Publisher

Mark E. Thibodeaux, S.J. draws from the experiences in his own prayer life to show readers how to improve their prayer lives. He shows readers that contemplative prayer is not as difficult as it may seem. "Contemplative prayer is not necessarily easy," says Thibodeaux. "In fact, there are parts of the experience that are very difficult. But the point is that if I have the strong will and desire to pray contemplatively, I do not have to shave my head and join a monastery to do it. The armchair that sits in my house is just as capable of being the 'holy ground' of contemplative prayer as the monastic stall of a cloistered church." Armchair Mystic will prove invaluable to individuals and small groups who are new to contemplative prayer, or who wish to deepen their experience of it.
