Such a wonderful and well written book. Definitely has a permanent place on my book shelf.

My only complaint about this book is the use of him, his, etc. G-d has no gender. I wish the title was Quiet in G-d's presence. However, this is a great intro to contemplative prayer. It was the right book for me, at the right time.

I have been following the ACTS model of praying for more than a year. It has been really helpful - my prayer life is much more directed and constant.

However, I have lost my quiet time with G-d over the last few years. I was trying to spend my walking with G-d, but that time has changed. Bill walks with me, which is good and then there is the cycling music.

Jan Harris lays out very simple rules for centering prayer. I just need to follow them.

If prayer is on your mind, read this book.
