Summary

A distillation of over 70 years as a monastic and more than three decades of writing on centering prayer, Reflections on the Unknowable is Fr. Thomas Keating's volume on how we might develop our intimacy with God and our experience of the Christian contemplative tradition. The first part of the book consists of a long interview with Fr. Thomas, in which he examines concepts of the divine - including the astonishments, playfulness, and transformation available to the individual willing to open the door to God. The second section consists of 31 brief homilies, which range over topics as diverse as the Trinity and the message of Epiphany, spiritual evolution and cultivating interior silence, and the treasure of spiritual poverty and the beauty of chaos.

Worth The Read

Thomas Keating is an incredibly enlightened individual. In order to grasp some of his concepts you must be more than just a journeyman on the path. If you are of a conservative mindset you probably won’t agree with some of the things he talks about but I applaud his courage to do so.
