Book Overview

Time in the wilderness -- solitary meditation on simplicity, prayer, and other key disciplines of faith -- is directly in keeping with Jesus' example of going apart to pray. Now, with the clarity and encouragement that distinguish the Renovar collection of spiritual resources, this gentle guide to retreat unshrouds that historical tradition -- and so reveals marvelous opportunities for spiritual renewal in contemporary Christian practice.Helping us...

An Invitation

Emilie Griffin masterfully welcomes the reader to the Wilderness. Based on Hosea 2, we are invited by our God to the wilderness with him, meaning a time for being loved and to learn from him. Engaging and purposeful in style, the reader sees that the author writes from experience, and not just a theoretical diatribe on the need for a "quiet time". Well done!

Retreat into nature to find a deeper connection to spirit.

Looking for a guide to make your own soul journey and retreat into nature. Emilie offers a guide to create your own spiritual journey facilitated by retreating from everyday life. Nature or the wilderness is the best place to find that connection to spirit that sometimes gets lost in the busy pace of life. Let this guide be your companion to create your retreat into the wilderness to experience the Divine.

For those who desire a quick guide to the subject

Griffin provides in 100 pages a short, concise guide to the field of spiritual retreat. This is only an appetiser but she provides a list of recommended texts for those who wish to go further. She concentrates on three types of retreats: the outward, inward, and corporate. This is followed by chapters outlining three retreats ranging from one day to three day to seven day. The frame is provided but you are left to your imagination to fill that in. Overall, a nice short introduction to a valuable exercise.

An invitation

Ms. Griffin not only invites, but accompanies us into the world of spiritual retreats. With detailed suggestions, instructions and examples, it doesn't take a spiritual giant to begin...just a willingness to move closer to God.
