Journey into Love by Nan Merrill

Book Description

"The Journey into Love" is literal, metaphoric, and archetypal. It is a believing and a discovering of Jesus' story as one's own, a process of internalizing various roads described in the New Testament. These are all paths to personal enlightenment, what Nan describes as a reaching to Love Consciousness. The Road to Damascus (Saul/Paul) involves the breaking down of the ego to receive Grace. Preparation is autobiographical in nature, a gaze within to understand who each of us is. The Roads into and through the Wilderness are studies of the self through the works of John the Baptist and then Jesus in the wilderness. As Jesus was tempted by Satan, we must understand what really ought to motivate, how to put temptation behind us. The Road to Jericho is an awakening to what a good neighbour is by looking at the Parable of the Good Samaritan, and how we might act accordingly. The final Road to Jerusalem leads to pain and the cross, but is also the road to communion with all of Creation.

Psalms for Praying by Nan Merrill Psalms for Praying, Hardback (February 2007)

Every commentary on the "Book of Psalms" has had to face the issue that many of these prayers commemorate and celebrate wrath and vengeance. This work addresses the needs of a world seeking to counter individual and societal injustices by a global peace born of personal peace through prayer and practice.

Lumen Christi, Holy Wisdom by Nan Merrill Lumen Christi, Holy Wisdom, Paperback (May 2002)

With admonitions, challenges and encouragements, this book is a series of spiritual self-help exercises for personal improvement. Hints and suggestions are given in meditations and brief contemplative insights aimed at the hesitant inquirer making the first gestures towards inner contentment.

Meditations and Mandalas by Nan Merrill Meditations and Mandalas, Paperback (August 2001)

The hand-crafted mandalas on facing pages represent the fruits of the author's own centering prayer, and are offered as another dimension to meditation to be reflected upon with the heart's eye rather than analyzed by the mind. Half of the profits are donated to Friends of Silence.
