Promoting Contemplative Spirituality

See the following

Publishers Weekly
summary on Barnes & Noble:


"Ford would seem an unlikely candidate to write a
gentle, moving introduction to traditional monastic spirituality. As
Billy Graham's brother-in-law and frequent stand-in, Ford's
evangelical bona fides are unquestionable. Yet he describes the
details of life at

Mepkin Abbey
, a Trappist monastery in South Carolina, with the
eye of the avid amateur painter he also is. Reading this book you'll
find yourself scribbling down prayers from obscure medieval figures
like a certain St. Fursey. Ford is also appealing as he describes
odd gestures he's willing to make in search of the God who's present
in the everyday: hugging a tree, hugging himself in an airport with
passersby all around…"
