Running Over Rocks

Spiritual Practices to Transform Tough Times

by Ian Adams


Price: £12.99
Publisher:Canterbury Press imprint of Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd
Published:August 2013
What a wonderful book from the author of the Cave Refectory Road - and although not a companion volume it almost feels as though it is. Contained in this book is the same spirituality but turned into a practical guide, a devotional, a weekly exercise and contemplation that builds on the same ancient ways and practices we discovered in Cave Refectory Road.

There are 52 studies in this book, each begins with a poem and then moves into a series of contemplations or studies that draw both from the very modern with a biblical reflection and older wisdom or insight too and rounded out with a varying Spiritual Practice at the end of each study. Some studies are practical and physical, some are mental and psychological, some are meditative and creative, all are deeply insightful and helpful.

This is a lovely book and would make a great one year devotional, but it also makes for a great "retreat" tool or resource.
