That Mysterious Man

Michael Woodward

These essays from an international group of contributors, including Laurence Freeman, John Clark, Una Kroll & David Scott, cover The Historical MilieuBaker’s Literary Heritage and Legacy and Baker as a Spiritual Guide. The collection marks a new dawn in our understanding of a neglected figure.

Baker emerges from his personal landscape of exile and persecution as a surprising focus of unity, someone able to feed the hunger for prayer many feel today.

He provides a point at which representatives of many differing traditions can meet, share and listen at a deep level to an outstanding and authentic teacher who believed that contemplative prayer is for everyone, and that there is no limit to what the Holy Spirit can work in a soul.
