Meditations in Prayer on the life of Christ according to the Four Evangelists"" is the quite descriptive sub-title of the book. It consists of excerpts from the four Gospels woven together so as to form the complete story of the life of Christ. Each section of the text is followed by a prayer or meditation based on the preceding passage. The text used is based on the Confraternity Edition of the New Testament. The author's thesis is that to ""pray the Gospels"" is the perfect way of being imbued with the spirit of Jesus Christ. A devotional book to be recommended to Catholic readers.
