This was a fantastic book. This book is seperated into differant themes.
Love, Longing, fear, suffering and so on..With each chapter is thoughts, scriptures and quotes from various sources.. This book is very well wrote and has quite a few personal stories from the author.
The chapters are broken down in differant sections for study and contemplation.
scripture, meditation, contemplation and such.
I really liked this book and am looking for more by this author.

Fantastic prayer journey for youth (or even adults). I used this alongside a blogging/journaling project with my middle school students and was very inspired by their experiences. Yaconelli writes openly, honestly, and humbly, inviting others to join him in a variety of styles of prayer and using many creative prayer methods.
I wanted a book that would generate some creative prayer ideas that could integrate into the youth ministry. great resource. something to return to for reminders, inspiration and a fresh approach.
Reading on my kindle. LOVE it. It's a book to help facilitate prayer. It's a really sweet read.
