Our Hearts Burned Within Us




#6012

After his death in 1982, John Main’s personal copy of the New Testament was found to have many passages marked by him. He had highlighted words of inspiration that he used as the basis of his own teaching on meditation. These passages nourished his insight into the Christian meaning of meditation as wordless, imageless prayer. ln this book, Gregory Ryan matches these passages of Scripture with extracts from John Main’s own writings on the same verses. This empowers our understanding of the familiar words to be illuminated and refreshed by John Main’s insight: By meditating we respond to Jesus’ call to faith and open ourselves to the riches of the divine reality within us. His insight helps us see why we meditate in Christian faith and why the mantra is a sacred means of letting go of distraction and becoming 'like little children’.
