A distillation of over seventy years as a monastic and more than three decades of writing on centering prayer, Reflections on the Unknowable is Fr. Thomas Keating’s latest volume on how we might develop our intimacy with God and our experience of the Christian contemplative tradition. The first part of the book consists of a long interview with Fr. Thomas, in which he examines concepts of the divine-including the astonishments, playfulness, and transformation available to the individual willing to open the door to God. The second section consists of thirty-one brief homilies, which range over topics as diverse as the Trinity and the message of Epiphany, spiritual evolution and cultivating interior silence, and the treasure of spiritual poverty and the beauty of chaos.

Fr. Thomas Keating was a founding member and the spiritual guide of Contemplative Outreach. He served on Contemplative Outreach’s Board of Trustees since the organization’s beginning and served as the Chairman of the Board. Fr. Keating was one of the principal architects and teachers of the Christian contemplative prayer movement. He was the author of many books, including Open Mind, Open Heart; Fruits and Gifts of the Spirit; and Invitation to Love. He lived for much of his life at St. Joseph’s Abbey, Massachusetts, and St. Benedict’s Monastery, Snowmass, Colorado. He died in 2019.
