Description

James Bishop was convicted and sent to prison for serious offences. With plenty of time on his hands, he rediscovered profound and effective techniques for meditation, through the help of the World Community for Christian Meditation, which does much prison work around the world. He then turned to the Rule of St Benedict and found in it a model and pattern of living which gave him balance and stability and helped to cure his own emotional disorders. This book is aimed at all those who are imprisoned in the modern world - not just prison inmates but all those battling with personal, emotional and psychological difficulties.
