The Joy Trilogy

The Joy Trilogy (3 VOLUMES)

ISBN: 0-8189-0938-2 596 pages $35

"Enjoy the Lord"
Contemplative prayer as the pathway to true joy

ISBN: 0-8189-0538-7 122 pages $10
How very difficult it is for most people to be joyful. Yet we were made for joy and have within our reach the means to achieve it. This book demonstrates how contemplative prayer is the path to the joy we seek. More particularly, it shows how contemplative prayer leads to a sense of self-worth and inner happiness which makes such joy possible. This revised version contains much original material which adds to the value of what was already a highly acclaimed little volume on practical contemporary spirituality.

"God Delights in You"
Understanding God as a close friend and one who loves us very much

ISBN:081890-594-8 171 pages $12.00
Book Reviewer:
God Delights in You is a wonderful book. Written simply yet full of powerful insights in how God treasures and delights in us. It contains much input from many 'ordinary' people on how they have been able to reflect on how their openness to God even in the midst of their imperfect humanness pleases Him greatly. Many books have described how God is displeased with our shortcomings. Few have focused so positively and thoroughly on how often He delights in us, His creation, His beloved. Just as even a messy, fussy baby delights his parents, so much more so do we delight our Heavenly Parent. What an uplift to read for those of us suffering from occasional low self esteem.

"Enjoy Your Precious Life"

ISBN:0-8189-0937-4 303 pages $15.00
