In Being in Love, William Johnston addresses the question of the purpose of prayer. He shares with the reader the discovery of new ways to a prayerful life that is both meditative and active.

His message is to surrender in love to God, to love God with one's own being, through prayer. Here Being in Love shows us how to pray-with heart, mind, intellect and body-as a form of communicating with God, one another, and the world around us. Johnston reveals, using his relationship with the Eastern traditions as a backdrop, the need and importance of finding stillness in our inner lives. He demonstrates in a clear and practical way, how we can make prayer a place for meditation and personal growth.

William Johnston S.J., an Irish priest who teaches at Sophia University in Tokyo, is the author of many acclaimed books, including, from Fordham University Press, Christian Zen: A Way of Meditation and Silent Music: The Science of Meditation.

From Our Editors

Believe it or not, some people have never quite learned how to open themselves up to God`s message. In other words, they have never mastered the ‘art of prayer.` In Being in Love, William Johnston offers guidance on how to put not only your mind into prayer, but you body and heart as well. According to the Irish Jesuit priest, we should all take a page out of the books of Eastern spiritualities to learn how to achieve stasis in our spiritual and personal lives. From there, we can focus on how to give ourselves to the Lord.
