Do you hunger for a richer experience of God, but just don't know where to start?

You're not alone. Many are aching to move beyond the superficialities that seem to plague so much of Church life and instead turn back to the contemplative spiritual practices of silence, solitude and stillness to help cultivate a deeper relationship with God, others and themselves.

In Curious Contemplative, Chris Webb invites you to join him in a thoughtful exploration of Christian contemplation. Following the remarkable journey of Elijah from attention seeking self-appointed leader to reflective and deep-rooted contemplative, he explores what we can learn from this story and how we can incorporate such spiritual disciplines into our own lives.
Journeying through crisis, revelation and transformation, Curious Contemplative is an ideal guide for anyone looking to explore contemplative spiritual practices for the first time or wanting ideas for revitalising and strengthening their relationship with God.
Filled with practical advice as well as discussion questions and Biblical exploration, Curious Contemplative will help you to engage confidently with the contemplative tradition so that you can live a deeper, richer life of prayer.
