Excellent spiritual reflection on prayer, with a particularly in-depth look at the Our Father.
Each chapter was a stand-alone essay. Some were good, others just okay. His other books on prayer are much better.

Although harsh at times, this book is a great look at more intense, spiritually rich personal prayer.

A book on prayer that I will return to again and again. It is obviously written by someone who is primarily a pray-er which is refreshing compared to so many books on prayer theory. Prayer is a practical activity and this books helps the reader get started or go deeper with their prayers. I particularly liked his section on meditation - scriptural and affecting how we act (not just mystical).

Recommended to Peter by: Wilf
Eight chapters of wisdom on prayer and some of the forms we find ourselves entering into when we pray.
Too much to take in in a single sitting.
A book to return to.
I found the chapters on 'The Lord's Prayer' and 'Meditation and Worship' particularly useful this time around.

condensed book. I think there are couple of books u must read before starting it just to b sure u get the concepts he is talking about. writing about praying is not easy as u must live the life of deep praying before writing about it & i think the writer was living it.

This is a book that will take repeated reading and reflection. Not a light read by any means, with no easy answers. The chapter on the Lord's Prayer alone is worth the price. Profound and challenging. Highly recommended.
