Best-selling author Richard J. Foster offers a warm, compelling, and sensitive primer on prayer, helping us to understand, experience, and practice it in its many forms-from the simple prayer of beginning again to unceasing prayer. He clarifies the prayer process, answers common misconceptions, and shows the way into prayers of contemplation, healing, blessing, forgiveness, and rest.
- The Ultimate Resource on Prayer
I don't believe it is humanly possible to improve such a book as this. Nothing on prayer, meditation and intamate transformation has been written in this way so far, and nothing else will ever beat this one.
- A minister and theologian in...
A minister and theologian in the Quaker tradition presents his musings and experiences regarding prayer. While he certainly has some evangelical tendencies, Foster's approach to the topic is quite within the Quaker tradition of emphasis on the personal, subjective "inner light." He touches not only on prayer, but also on many other aspects of the worship of God. Terence Aselford gives a competent performance of this work, which is a combination of lecture, sermon, how-to suggestions, and stories of inspirational incidents. Aselford reads clearly and with appropriate expression as the discussion moves from topic to topic. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
