In 1 Kings Chapter 19 we read how the prophet Elijah went to meet with God on Mount Horeb. There was an earthquake, fire and wind, but God chose to speak to Elijah in a whisper. So it is today that God often speaks when we slow ourselves down to listen to His voice. According to Richard Foster, listening is at the heart of meditative prayer and in Sanctuary of the Soul he explores this faith tradition, showing its biblical roots and sharing insights from Christian writers, of both recent and classical tradition. Foster's introduction will give you step-by-step help to begin this enriching prayer practice for yourself.
