"The Open Door provides an open window into a radically different approach to spiritual formation, one that is more ancient/Eastern than modern/Western, one that feels refreshingly new as well as seasoned, rich, and time-tested."
—Brian McLaren, author of Everything Must Change and A Generous Orthodoxy


"The joy of [this] book is to allow us to meet the icons where the saints want us to meet them–face to face in a prayer corner, in candlelight as we approach the altar, above the beds of our sleeping children. . . . This book is a call to stand still, take a deep breath and face the cloud of witnesses."
—Terry Mattingly, columnist, Scripps Howard News Service
