From Library Journal
Jones, a long-time Methodist minister recently turned Roman Catholic priest, Trappist, and hermit in the Ozarks, has written a kind of sequel to Season in the Desert. Where that book treated time and how to make it holy, this one addresses space. A profoundly Christian and truly ecumenical thinker, Jones has produced a challenging, thoughtful work that pushes Christians toward seeing, finding, and creating spatial beauty. His assertions are grounded not only in his own experiences, including a life-transforming pilgrimage into the heart of the Grand Canyon, but also in his broad and profound reading. Highly recommended; this book should find and deserves a wide readership.
