By disposition and temperament, I have always been given to silent contemplation, especially Teresian prayer. Even so, the problems and challenges of contemplative prayer never go away. That's why a guide like this so helpful. It can assist you when you want to give up.
When people ask me about prayer, as often happens, I recommend this book along with Romano Guardini's "The Art of Praying." They're all you need to begin.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. Laird's writing style is excellent, and he brings the contemporary and the classical together in such a relevant, meaningful way. The narration is perfectly suited to the text, very dignified and intelligent.
I'd also recommend Laird's book, "A Sunlit Absence," if you enjoy this one.
Please don't give up on contemplative prayer. Its rewards are immeasurable and worth every trial and difficulty.

_Into the Silent Land_ is in my top five most influential books on the spiritual journey. I have read it—and now listened to it, too—multiple times over the years. It registers more deeply with me each time.
