Publisher Comments:

Following in the footsteps of the two earlier teaching series of the 1950s and 1970s, these volumes seek to reveal the distinctive vision Anglicanism offers for the people of God today. Each book includes a study guide and a list of additional resources. The series is designed for wide parish use, including adult education, classes for inquirers and newcomers, the adult catechumenate, parish libraries, and study groups throughout the church year.

In this down-to-earth book on the essentials of prayer, Guenther answers many of the most common questions about prayer and the spiritual life. She also discusses basic matters of Christian practice, such as making a confession, going on retreat, using a journal to pray, finding a spiritual director, and praying when God does not seem to listen.

Synopsis:

In this down-to-earth book on the essentials of prayer, Margaret Guenther answers many of the common questions of the spiritual life, such as How do we learn to listen to God in our prayer? and, How do we develop a life of prayer in the midst of busy, active lives? She includes practical descriptions of a number of ways Christians have prayed through the centuries, from using the Jesus Prayer or rosary to praying with the stories of scripture and prayer book liturgies. Guenther also discusses basic matters of Christian practice, such as making a confession, intercession, going on retreat, simplifying our lives, using a journal to pray, finding a spiritual director, and praying through times of desolation when God does not seem to be listening.

Margaret Guenther's The Practice of Prayer is a gem of a book. She discusses what prayer is, the types of prayer (adoration, thanksgiving, confession, petition,and intercession and different methods of praying (centering prayer, the Jesus Prayer, etc.). While reading this book, I felt that I was sitting next to her and having a cup of tea as we discussed prayer. She is very down to earth and caring. She uses experiences from her life to illustrate what she is discussing. I recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn more about the practice of prayer. It is a keeper.
