About the Author
Dr. Anthony Lynn Lilles is a graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville, and completed his graduate and post-graduate studies at the Angelicum. He has worked in Northern Colorado for over twenty years in various parishes and the Office of Liturgy for the Archdiocese of Denver. After having served as Academic Dean of St. John Vianney Theological Seminary, he is currently an associate professor of theology. Most of his research has been devoted to the spiritual doctrine of Blessed Elisabeth of the Trinity O.C.D. and the Carmelite Doctors of the Church. A married father of three, he is grateful to God for his family and for the life they share at the foot of the Rocky Mountains.

Too often we view faith from a flat, two-dimensional perspective. Catechism, without prayer, lacks perspective. Dr. Lilles teaches us to see faith in three dimensions. That which was once flat and shallow gains texture and depth. Too often we have accepted the desert, but overlooked the garden.
The author offers a powerful premise (antidote) for our times - theology should be studied on our knees. Theology, which has become arid, as if bleached dry by a drought, rebounds when infused with prayer. The premise offered in this work is that we must allow the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, delivered in prayer, to transport living water to our lives and our parishes.
