This study illustrates how the isolated prophet or mystic is no longer relevant and that it is only through the formation of prophetic communities of faith that our modern sense of fragmentation can be addressed.

Mary Grey

'The progression of her argument is that the true contemplative is not escaping from reality, but rather fully engaged in and with the world if he or she is to be a contemplative at all. Such contemplation necessarily engages one in the painful realities of prayer: we become vulnerable, more than we thought, to the crudities of the world: from Sadaam Hussein to the guns of Afghanistan and beyond. Professor Grey's discussion is both dense and sparse: her engagement with feminist theology is not matched by her engagement with classic Christian spiritual writers or themes in spirituality. Yet her book raises important issues for any contemporary thinkers, especially those engaged in practical theology, either in the academy or in the Church.' Phyllis Zagano, Anglican Theological Review'Challenging and thoughtful. The entire book is engaging, very well written and extensively footnoted and referenced.'Gillian Walters, Journal of Theology for Southern Africa
