The contemplative activity ordinarily expected of religious is approached as a growing need for modern man. An Oratorian living in Munich, a writer skilled in questions on the borderline, between psychology and theology, here discusses the significance of meditation. He starts with a practical approach to meditation on nature, goes on to traditional Christian methods, quotes examples from and Swami Vivekanda. Unusual in theme, thoughtful study will reward anyone aware of the need for withdrawal, while religious will find here new motivation and inspiration. A useful analysis of a too seldom explored area viewed psychologically as well as theologically.
