Exploring acts of touch in religions of all descriptions (including Christianity)
The church in the West desperately needs the wisdom in this book, an anniversary edition of Willard's writing on spiritual formation, despite some of its cultural irritations
A book to iron out misunderstandings, reduce fears, remove guilt - and warmly to be commended
