This book can help anyone who can't make it to Washington DC to participate in a Shalem program to nevertheless get a taste of the spiritual wisdom that is offered there. Edwards, an Episcopal priest, found his life turned upside down after participating in an extended retreat at the Nyingma Institute in California. This east-meets-west story does not end with Edwards becoming a Buddhist; rather, he uses the wisdom he gleaned from Tibetan spirituality to deepen his own practice as a western Christian.

This book provided a good overview of how to live with more mindfulness in an alotted 24-hour span. I enjoyed the authors' introductory remarks about his spiritual explorations in California; I would have enjoyed reading more about that period, although it was parenthetical to the books' thrust.

In his book, Living Simply through the Day: Spiritual Survival in a Complex Age, Tilden Edwards begins chapter one with an old German story about the hands of God: God had never really finished making a human being and thus had never seen a finished one. The Holy One determined to send the divine right hand into the world to take human form. As that hand empties, though, it becomes more and more simple and clear. The left hand then slowly unites with the right. We come ever closer to heeding Jesus’ prescription for life: Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48).

The author recounts his spiritual growth and looks at how waking, praying, serving, eating, playing, and sleeping relate to Christian life
