Of the many contemporary books published on the spiritual life, most will pass quietly and quickly from the scene. Those that survive are rooted in the writers' intimate knowledge of the spiritual legacy of the past, on their appreciation of the best spiritual work of our era, and on a willingness to "take over" the wisdom of behavioral psychology and the social sciences. The best and most helpful writings on spirituality are vitalized by the personal experience of the authors. That is what gives this work the aura of authenticity which imparts to the reader the confidence that what is written in its pages has been lived and experienced deeply.

Fr. Francis Kelly Nemeck, O.M.I., (1936-2014) taught theology in the United States and Canada, besides having missionary and pastoral experience in Texas and Mexico. He earned a doctorate in spirituality from Les Facultés Catholiques de Lyon in France. He served for forty years at Lebh Shomea, authored and coauthored several books, and was a spiritual director. 

Marie Theresa Coombs lives as a canonically recognized hermit at Lebh Shomea, a contemplative-eremitical house of prayer in the desert of South Texas. She earned a master's degree in theological studies from Oblate School of Theology, San Antonio. Besides coauthoring several books on prayer and spirituality, she is a spiritual director.
