Lumen Christi, Holy Wisdom An Invitation to Awakening by Nan Merrill

Lumen Christi, Holy Wisdom An Invitation to Awakening


Lumen Christi, Holy Wisdom An Invitation to Awakening by Nan Merrill

This inspiring book contains admonitions, challenges, and encouragements for the reader to move up another step on the spiritual ladder. In short, these are spiritual self-help exercises for personal improvement. The gentle hints and suggestions come in the form of meditations and brief contemplative insights, which will help the hesitant inquirer who is making the first gestures towards inner contentment.


This small, nicely designed book consists of meditations on a variety of spiritual topics. The layout is very clean and crisp with a lot of white space; visually, the book exudes tranquility. The short meditations are very thought-provoking and extremely poetic. Overall, this is worth reading and a good addition to the library's prayer collection. Catholic Library World, December 2002 Merrill has followed her heart-song, and we are the beneficiaries of her inner work. Spirituality & Health, July 19, 2002
