Prayer is often perceived as a difficult, abstract exercise in which we close our eyes and seek God in an invisible, ethereal realm beyond our everyday experience.
Despite Christian history's rich stock of vibrant prayer imagery, today much of it has fallen into obscurity. In this beautifully illustrated book, Margaret Silf explores seven images of prayer. She uses the concept of a landscape to share these prayers. Her landscapes are both classic and modern: the garden, the desert, the cave, the urban jungle, the mountaintop, the seashore, and the forest. All are fruitful areas for self-discovery, inviting us to connect with the mystery of God in our lives.
