The call of the Gospel is a call to conversion, a total transformation. This book, essentially a sketch of biblical spirituality, helps respond to that call in a truly fulfilling manner.

Each chapter presents a different aspect of the spiritual life, highlighting various important dimensions of the Christian faith and of Christian living. The author illustrates each theme by discussing it with the use of appropriately chosen texts from scripture.

The commentary on the scriptural texts and the meditations that follow are quite topical and offer a fresh understanding of the mind, attitude and sayings of Jesus vis-à-vis his relationship with the numerous people we come across in the Gospels. The prayer that generously dot the pages of this book are examples of spontaneity and would prove a great help to the reader in expressing himself/herself as far as ‘praying’ is concerned.

This book is remarkable also for the originality of insights it offers and for its simplicity.
