Many readers—both priests and lay people—have been raving
about this book of meditations for its depth, readability, and
“I had lots of excuses as to why
I wasn´t going to like this. (Why list them all?)
After reading the introduction on *how* to do a meditation,
and after learning that a meditation is NOT spiritual reading,
I decided to give it a try. Not only are
the meditation guides among the best (if not THE best)
I´ve ever come across, the book is laid out in
very helpful ways. Gospel readings are numbered and a handy
table helps you find the Gospel reading of the day.
What more can I say? I´ve used this every week
now for 4 weeks and I see myself continuing to
use it every day - indefinitely.” --Carl Brown, Cincinnati, OH
meditations are not of the fluffy, vague, feel-good variety that
has sadly become too common these days. Father Bartunek offers
deep and meaningful meditations from four aspects of our relationship
with Christ: Christ the Lord, Christ the Teacher, Christ the
Friend, and Christ in my life. By using the principles
of concentration, consideration, conversation and commitment, each meditation should lead
one to an experience of Christ´s presence and a firm,
concrete commitment to better imitate him.” --Rhett Brotherton, Amazon.com review
is probably the best investment that I have ever made
in regard to a book. The author´s knowledge of history
and the Old Testament give fresh insight into the gospels.
I was unsure about what to expect from it but
now I don´t know how I ever prayed without it.
I have used The Better Part almost every day since
I got it in January! It is a book that
I can see myself using every day for years to
come.” –M. Broussard, Baton Rouge, LA.
