Unlock the secrets of active meditation
In a world which expects instant gratification and immediate success, spiritual meditation looks like hard work. Edmond Smith does not deny this, but still calls us back to this much-neglected discipline.
We are given an insight into the lives of various figures in history who left an indelible mark on the church of their time and on subsequent generations. Each emphasised the need for serious contemplation of Scripture and we see how this enriched their lives and benefited the church as whole.
We are challenged to follow their footsteps and be like the tree planted by the streams of living water, the word of God, drawing continually on its life and consequently bearing much fruit.

'Here is what meditation means, how to do it, what benefits it brings, and upon what to fill our minds, as we come actively before God. I recommend it wholeheartedly.'-- Rev J F Dunn, English Churchman
"...well written, with the author's choice of figures for discussion admirably serving his purposes. Beyond this, the book's call to a sustained reading and serious contemplation of the Scriptures makes it a worthwhile addition to any Christian's library."-- Mark P. Ryan, The Reformed Theological Review
