Imagine You Walked with Jesus: A Guide to Ignatian Contemplative Prayer {Book Review}

Imagine You Walked with Jesus: A Guide to Ignatian Contemplative Prayer
by Jerry Windley-Daoust
Our Sunday Visitor


This book is a treasure!

Windley-Daoust provides all the context of first-century Palestine, including what the buildings looked and felt like, what clothes the people wore, and what food they enjoyed, as well as insights into the Jewish culture of the time. He provides prayer to help us receive the specific Scripture and then ‘sets the scene’  with helpful detail about the context, given the culture and any special references alluded to within the Scripture. The author then extends a few questions to prompt reflection and consider how the story applies to our lives. He encourages us to reflect and prayer-journal or share with a prayer group.

I love how the Holy Spirit can help us to use our imagination for more personal prayer! The 40 carefully chosen Scripture selections offer wonderful opportunities to imagine ourselves within the Scripture and allow Jesus to interact intimately with us.

This would be an INCREDIBLE daily prayer exercise for LENT, and if we intentionally invoke the Holy Spirit to guide us, I think this imaginative and inspired prayer journaling is guaranteed to develop our personal relationship with Jesus!
