An Armchair Retreat
$3.50 - $5.00

A classic and timeless work!

Why does God love me? Why should he (or anyone)? What are my choices worth? How do I handle frustration and failure? How do I deal with sin? Do my sins make me "bad"? What Is the attitude I wake up with? Can Jesus be real to me? As a person? As a friend? As an object of passionate love?

This book gives deep and challenging thoughts about these questions and guides you through nine different methods of prayer to absorb them. This is a "do it yourself" retreat for armchair moments. Settle in and enjoy it.

Father David M. Knight is an internationally known retreat master and best-selling authors. An Armchair Retreat is his spiritual "how-to" for conducting a successful personal private retreat for people who are simply too busy to attend a formal closed retreat, or for shut-ins or the elderly. Father Knight, respected for his success in leading retreats, has compiled this plan for making and strengthening your own spiritual retreat.

The author poses key questions to stir self-examination as he shares effective methods to make your meditation more meaningful. Father Knight centers his approach on prayer, giving instructions for the "vestibule of prayer" and the "prayer enhancer." He provides an in-depth discussion of sin in our lives. He guides readers to find out what sin is, how to deal with sin, and explicitly tells of God's grace and forgiveness in conquering sin.

He provides a way for the overcommitted, homebound or elderly to experience spiritual renewal through this armchair escape to personal time with God.
