Book Release ... It's Getting Closer
I have been looking forward to this book's release for quite some time, and I can't believe it's almost here. The human prayer of Jesus - it's an absolute ocean for us to immerse ourselves in, and the Holy Spirit opens the way through the Church's sacraments, devotions, and practices! I'm very excited by the early reviews that have come in:
"Shane Kapler has reflected deeply upon the Scriptures and the history of the Christian people. He makes it clear that the mystery of God is not something to be figured out, but rather, something to immerse oneself in."
- Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki, Springfield, IL
"This text beautifully and masterfully demonstrates that when our eyes are opened to the rich theological truths of the Church, seen through their ancient Jewish scriptural and liturgical roots, our hearts will stand all the more ready to embrace that Sacred Heart of Christ who taught us to how to pray." - Kevin Vost, author of Memorize the Reasons!
“This book gives more than most of us know how to wish for. Shane Kapler leads readers beyond ‘prayers’ to prayer. Beginning to pray in this way, we can begin to live our heaven even as we pass our days on earth. As the child's voice said to St. Augustine: Take up and read! This book can change your life for the better.” - Mike Aquilina, author of
The Mass: The Glory, The Mystery, The Tradition
"In this well researched book we learn how Jesus truly and concretely desires to incorporate us into his prayer life with the Father. Kapler offers a brilliant and well organized blending together of the rituals of the Jewish tradition and the liturgical prayer of Jesus and His Church. Historical, theological, liturgical, devotional, and deeply personal, this book is certain to help you grow more in love with Jesus and the treasures offered to you through His Church!"
- Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, author of Under the Mantle: Marian Thoughts from a 21st Century Priest
