Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

Seven landscapes of prayer, both classic and modern, are explored in this beautifully illustrated, contemporary book
 
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. Prayer is often perceived as a difficult, abstract exercise in which we close our eyes and seek God beyond our everyday experience in an invisible, ethereal realm. Here, concrete connections between the world of prayer and our physical reality are made—allowing us to revel in both the physical and spiritual worlds simultaneously, and become that much closer to God in the process.
