This book invites the reader to a spiritual odyssey. It opens before the reader an itinerary for venturing forth with God, aided by the astonishing writings of seventh-century Isaac the Syrian. Long-lost manuscripts have recently been discovered, translated, and published in scholarly works; this book aims to make them accessible to readers who want to experience their wisdom personally and so progress in a spiritual adventure. Isaac’s writings are explored through the lens of his beloved metaphor of diving for pearls, which opens many avenues for reflection and spiritual practice. This is a book to inspire preachers and teachers on prayer. It will stimulate and offer a resource to spiritual directors and retreat givers, and it provides material ideally suited to quiet days and retreats. A practical resource, it includes questions for individual or group reflection at the end of every chapter and a range of prayer exercises. Above all, it is offered to those who want to leave the shallows and launch out into the deep in their spiritual journey.

One could, with rich reward, read bits of this book with every moment of leisure. It is chock full of discrete, random insights and practical wisdom about everyday living, best choices and durable truths of profound importance. Each has been condensed to essence from fully rationalized propositions. Every insight is carefully crafted, Haiku-like, into matching constructs of two lines totally an average of 15 words. If in your normal reading you occasionally encounter a phrase or sentence that stops you cold because it strikes you as some profound idea of importance, causing you to read it again to more firmly fix it in your mind, then you will understand why you will not be able to read long passages at a time. It is the kind of book to be enjoyed in small takes. So, you'll likely want to keep it handy for quick reference to best harvest those fragmented idle moments that consume so much of our otherwise busy days. Consider, as one of many examples, that a third of the time you watch TV is devoted to annoying commercials for things you don't need. It may be much kinder to your mind to fill those squandered time fragments with insights of value.Everyone, at whatever intellect, tends to grow wiser with age. Clearly, then, wisdom is a cumulative process. The trick is to grow wiser faster. The building blocks of wisdom, in essence, are insights. With each new insight we become wiser than we were.So, logically, we all would gain by learning to treasure and store up our insights. The more, the better. The deeper, the richer. Cumulative wisdom leads us to better choices in everyday life and a more self -fulfilling future. It is a book for all adults who like to think.
