No one can teach a Christian to pray, like Teresa can.

This lively little book introduces postmodern readers to one of Christianity’s most endearing prayer warriors, and guides them through her most radical teachings.

I continued to read the chapter reviews and was surprised when Claudia emailed me for my address to offer ...more
