This volume in the popular For Today series deals with one of the most central and important aspects of Christian living-the practice of prayer. While we are familiar with prayer, numerous questions surround it. Theologian Martha Moore-Keish addresses questions such as, 'Who is the God we encounter in prayer?', 'Who are we who pray?', and 'What does prayer do?' Her solid theological discussions and illustrations are wonderfully readable and helpful. Moore-Keish goes on to consider other issues, such as times, contexts, and modes of prayer. The book provides fresh help for understanding and revitalizing prayer life, challenges readers to engage all the senses while in prayer, and invites them to use prayer as the chief exercise of faith. Both groups and individuals can use this deeply theological yet engaging book and its discussion questions to increase their understanding of prayer and to enrich their prayer practice.
