Seldom does a spiritual memoir make as provocative an impression as Patrick Hannon’s remarkable first book, Running into the Arms of God. Combining the storytelling skills of John Shea or Andrew Greeley with the spiritual sensitivity of a Joyce Rupp, Ronald Rolheiser or Richard Rohr, Hannon uses the liturgical hours of the monastic day as a frame on which to hang his very powerful stories of prayer.
