The author of THE BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER gives a similar class on contemplating God through meditation. The lesson is on the Christian traditions of meditation, a historical context that brings Christianity closer to the other religious traditions than ever. With personal examples from his own life, Finley gives an intimate lesson on how to move beyond the worldly and intellectual modes our culture prescribes and into a quieter, more centered way of connecting with the God around us. The author's numerous references to the listener and the breathy, close-miked recording give this audio an invasive, overachieving quality that draws attention away from the author's theological sensibilities and suggestions.
