About the Author
Fr. John Bartunek received his BA in History from Stanford University in 1990. He converted to Catholicism in 1991 and entered the religious Congregation of the Legionaries of Christ two years later in 1993. After his ordination, he earned his doctorate in moral theology in 2010. He provided spiritual support on the set of Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ while researching the 2005 Catholic best seller, Inside the Passion, the only authorized, behind-the-scene explanation of the film. Fr. John has contributed news commentary regarding religious issues on NBC, CNN, Fox, and the BBC. He also served as the English-language press liaison for the Vatican's 2005 Synod of Bishops on the Eucharist. Fr. John currently splits his time between Michigan and Rome, where he teaches theology at Mater Ecclesiae College and Regina Apostolorum.
Praise for A Guide to Christian Meditation
"In this book, after a brief historical introduction to Christian meditation, Father John provides both an elegant and memorable method for meditation along with very helpful examples of specifically how to put this method into practice. He manages to do this while keeping our sights on Christ, not the method. His emphasis helps the reader to avoid common and unfortunately popular errors that overemphasize the means and de-emphasize the all-important endâ€”a deeper relationship with Christ himself. May your faith, and the faith of those you love, be uniquely blessed by this important work."
— Dan Burke founder of the Avila Institute for Spiritual Formation
