“Few books on the spiritual life blend the actual practice of spirituality so that the book has the advantages of a workbook with rich guidance and valuable information.”
—DIOGENES ALLEN, Stuart Professor of Philosophy, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary and author of Three Outsiders: Pascal, Kierkegaard and Simone Weil

“Kent Ira Groff’s book is a refreshing outpost for weary pilgrims on the spiritual journey. His creative use of paradox (we are always traveling to return home), his respect for all religious traditions, and his genuine love for those who are sometimes numb in the faith shine through his readable words and practical suggestions to come aside and rest awhile with God.”
—DOLORES CURRAN, family life educator and author of Traits of a Healthy Family

“The critical question now facing human beings is, “What does it mean to be religious? Kent Groff is a dependable guide who has brilliantly illuminated a path for belief, prayer and service. He shows his readers how to rediscover the old truth, that to pray is to life.”
—ROSS MACKENZIE, Former Director of the Department of Religion, Chautauqua Institution, New York
