A superb book on the art of prayer. Foster hasn't written a how-to book, but more like a description of various approaches to prayer. He utilizes ancient church teachings, biblical insight and analogy to help the reader discover prayer for his/herself. I am using this in a group study and we are loving it.read more

More Lenten reading. Foster takes on a huge spiritual subject and makes it manageable. He briefly describes the various forms that prayer can take, but makes it perfectly clear that there is no wrong way to pray as long as one has a heart for God and wants honest communion with Him. I will purchase a copy of this for my permanent library, as this is a book I will want to refer to frequently.read more

Dry at times, really out there at times, inspiring at times. This book covers so much about prayer it almost left me paralized. I probably need to revisit this in small bite sized pieces. And to be honest, sometimes Dick Fo freaks me out.read more
