Why Not Be a Mystic: An Irresistible Invitation to Experience the Presence of God Here and Now

Frank Tuoti, Author, George A. Maloney, Author, George A. Maloney, Introduction by Crossroad Publishing Company $19.95 (192p) ISBN 978-0-8245-1453-2
A former Trappist monk, now a layman on the advisory board of the International Thomas Merton Society and editor of its newsletter Hermitage, Tuoti shares his belief that all people can benefit from opening themselves up to the life of mystical prayer. Using powerfully articulated quotes from mystics past and present, Tuoti sets a compelling argument. The shortcoming, however, is that while there is a great deal of information offered on what, there is very little on how. One feels, consequently, as if one has read a fine book on the merits of homemade bread-the nutritional benefits, the smell and texture, its taste in comparison to that of store-bought bread-only to discover in the end that the author has neglected to insert any recipes.
