William A. Meninger, O.C.S.O., is a monk of St. Benedict's Monastery in Snowmass, Colorado.
"Using the 14th-century spiritual classic The Cloud of Unknowing as
both a jumping-off place and a sustained point of reference,
Meninger does a powerful, even stunning job of explaining
contemplative prayer and making it approachable for any seeker. . .
. The result is an excellent guide for anyone interested in
deepening his or her Christian prayer life."
