Joy in God

Joy in God

By Hartmann Joachim & Unkelhausse



Contemplative prayer and the contemplative way of life are the central themes of this book. Against the backdrop of their rich experience of accompanying those coming on retreat to House Gries, Germany, the authors talk about what happens in silence: healing and wholeness, suffering and consolation, forgiveness and reconciliation, gratitude and joy... This originated from a desire to make more widely available the experiences that emerge through conversations between retreatants and guides. The individual chapters of the book, each based on a particular theme have a clear and consistent structure. A short introduction to the theme is followed by a conversation. Scripture, the writings of St. Ignatius, experiences from spiritual accompaniment as well as the authors' own personal experiences form the basis for these conversations. Through using the questions, "Where was my heart burning?" "Where were my eyes opened?" the authors pick out aspects in the conversation which triggered a particular resonance within them. Finally, each chapter concludes with short exercises for the reader, relevant to the theme.
