Joy in God: Rekindling an Inner Fire


Joachim Hartmann SJ and Annette Clara Unkelhäußer

‘…a wonderfully comforting book, an opportunity to recalibrate our busy lives and give ourselves the space and time to rediscover genuine rest, insight and a new way of living.’      Intercom

Contemplative prayer and the contemplative way of life are the central themes of this book. Against the backdrop of their experience of accompanying those coming on retreat to House Gries, the authors talk about what happens in silence: healing and wholeness, suffering and consolation, forgiveness and reconciliation, gratitude and joy.

Joachim Hartmann SJ and Annette Clara Unkelhäußer are retreat companions and direcors of the Jesuit retreat cntre House Gries, Germany.
