Recommends it for: anyone seeking to deepen their relationship with God
Shelves: christian
This is one of the best little books I've ever read. Catherine Marshall writes from a lifetime of experience of prayer and a relationship with God. Her little chapters on different "types" of prayer are peppered with anecdotes from her own and others lives, and her faith, while in some places expressed in a dated manner, is still deep and relevant. a great read for anyone seeking to deepen their walk with God and see His Will in their lives.
