This new edition of this popular book by Jesuit spiritual director Thomas Green, S.J., synthesizes the spiritual counsel of classic Christian writers for a new generation thirsty for God. With almost 200,000 copies in print in twelve languages, When the Well Runs Dry builds on Green's classic and bestselling primer on prayer, Opening to God. In this proven and popular roadmap for those digging deeper into the mystery of prayer, he skillfully coaxes readers to re-examine their perspectives on prayer. Prayer, he teaches, has less to do with what they do or know, and more to do with what God does in them.


"Classics don't grow old."

"When the Well Runs Dry has kept so many people I know staying put in prayer. Through it, they discover the deeper aquifer that leaves them refreshed and our Church renewed. Classics don't grow old, and there is as much value in this book today as the day the author completed it."

John Haughey, S.J.

"Humor and ... compassion."

"With kind humor and easygoing compassion, Thomas Green explains how to find our way through the 'dark night of the soul.'"
