Award-winning author Walter Wangerin Jr. gracefully explores the dynamics of prayer - of speaking, if listening, of waiting, and of hearing God's voice. With luminous prose, he surveys the landscape of communication with God - what prayer feels like, looks like, and sounds like. He points out that whole prayer is a circle, closed and complete. We pour out our hearts and minds to God, who listens as we do. Then we listen intently for his voice when he speaks. Wangerin encourages readers not to eliminate any part of the circle so we don't cut the conversation short.
