This summer, let’s dive deeper...

Let’s put out into the deep (Luke 5:4) to enrich our knowledge and understanding of the faith, and become more effective fishers of the men and women in our lives. Let’s dive more deeply into our prayer lives, Catholicism’s relationship with other world religions, and why we believe what we do. It’s a fascinating, life-giving journey. Won’t you join us?

With simple, down-to-earth language, Rolheiser illustrates the importance of prayer and offers techniques for how to pray, using examples from daily life, Scripture, and contemporary writers. He delves into the places that we fear to go with our issues about prayer, encouraging us with gentle kindness and words of hope and inspiration. This is a book for all manner of believers, whether your faith is solidly rooted, wavering between childhood religion and adult faith, or just not sure what you believe—or whether you believe at all.
