Product Description

Throughout history there has been a felt yearning of the human spirit to communicate with its creator. The practice of prayer and meditation in modern Western Christianity can trace important roots to early Church prayer, especially Eastern traditions, as well as the wisdom of early Church fathers. M. Basil Pennington, O.C.S.O., author of the highly acclaimed Daily We Touch Him, has developed a new approach to these ancient Christian forms. His "centering prayer" combines the best of the Eastern Christian spiritual exercises (such as the Jesus Prayer) with a spirituality for today's world. He offers simple suggestions for overcoming problems that discourage people from praying well. Readers will learn how to relax for prayer, how to listen and be directed by the Other, how to handle the pain and distraction that stifle out attempts at achieving the highest possible communication with God. An eminently practical book, Centering Prayer is a source of real inspiration that shows--through a blend of East and West--our common love of God and belief in Jesus Christ.

Publisher's Description

The practice of prayer and meditation in modern Western Christianity is rooted in the Eastern tradition of early Church prayer as well as the wisdom of early Church fathers. In Centering Prayer, M. Basil Pennington, the author of the highly acclaimed Daily We Touch Him, returns to these roots, offering contemporary Christians a new approach to ancient prayer forms.

Pennington combines the best of the Eastern spiritual exercises (such as the Jesus Prayer) with a spirituality for today's world. Addressing the obstacles that discourage people from praying well, he explains how to relax for prayer, how to listen to and be directed by the Other, and how to handle the pain and distractions that can stifle attempts to communicate with God. Centering Prayer has sold more than a quarter million copies since it was first published in 1982. In this eminently practical book, simple, inspiring instructions will help readers find the comfort and the guidance they seek through prayer.
