Guided Ignatian Contemplation: Meditations on the Gospels to Come Closer to the Heart of Jesus

Guided Ignatian Contemplation: Meditations on the Gospels to Come Closer to the Heart of Jesus by [Lawrence Keller]

I cannot think of another time in my life when I have craved peaceful meditation more than I have over the last year. Some of us are able to do this without prompts while others need inspiration in order to truly reach a peaceful state. Readers who may not necessarily feel versed in the books of the Bible can still benefit from the mediations provided by Lawrence Keller in Guided Ignatian Contemplation: Meditations on the Gospels to Come Closer to the Heart of Jesus.

Guided Ignatian Contemplation: Meditations on the Gospels to Come Closer to the Heart of Jesus, by Lawrence Keller, is a unique compilation of fourteen stories selected from the gospels. Each story builds upon the next and is designed to shape and encourage prayer and a deeper level of introspection. Keller’s collection is presented to readers as a way to spark conversations with Jesus.

Keller has shaped these particular fourteen stories into a striking collection written in a style that will capture readers’ attention and hearts from the first page. Not only is the visual imagery stunning, but the writing style is simple and straightforward while at the same time gripping.

Keller’s work takes me back to the days when my grandmother would share Bible stories with my sister and me. Her soothing voice and the beauty of the lesson were again brought to life with this lovely book of meditations. Keller more than accomplishes his goal of creating opportunities for readers to find ways to converse with God. He gives readers ample opportunities to relate to characters and see themselves in the evolving plotlines.

Guided Ignatian Contemplation is a book I didn’t really know I was missing. Many years have passed since my last encounter with a devotional book, and Keller’s work fills a real void in my spiritual life. I am beyond thankful to have met up with his work and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a book of meditations that is biblically-based.
