If you haven’t already read it, Clint Sabom’s memoir about his own awakening in the Christian Mystical tradition is a mesmerizing and intimate story.
Here is what others are saying about Sabom’s book, Preparation For Great Light:
“I couldn’t put this book down, I’ve been searching for something else for a while now. I’m new to centerings prayer, and his book has helped me think a lot. I would love to go to monastery!”
— Kindle Customer
“The book is honest, raw, revealing, forgiving and offers encouragement to the fallable seeker. A wonderful read that swings from easy spacious prose to intense stream of consciousness journaling – the writer holds nothing back and takes us for a deeply meaningful ride.”
— Rabbi Ben Shalva, author of Spiritual Cross-Training and Ambition Addiction
