Product Description

"The product of an exceptionally lucid mind and sustained reflection on the subject matter. When Huw Parri Owen wrote something, it was because he had thought about it at some depth." Stephen N. Williams, from the Foreword

Before his death in October of 1996, Huw Parri Owen, the Oxford-trained Emeritus Professor of Christian Doctrine at King's College, London, completed three books in addition to several he had previously published. Two of those three have since been lost; the third, The Basis of Christian Prayer, is now available posthumously for the first time.

In this work, H.P. Owen is concerned not only with the practice of prayer, but likewise with its objective structure and content. Perhaps most significantly, he deals at length with the theological and philosophical questions that prayer raises. Proceeding from both biblical and philosophical standpoints, and encompassing as many elements of prayer as possible, Owen addresses the various forms of vocal prayer (adoration, thanksgiving, confession, petition and intercession), the Lord's Prayer, meditation, contemplation and mystical prayer. Additionally, he covers such topics as prayer and belief, prayer and religious experience, the language of prayer and the place of the emotions in prayer.

Combining the analytic precision of a trained philosopher with the insight and sensitivity of a seasoned veteran in the Christian faith, The Basis of Christian Prayer is a unique and invaluable resource for the reflective life.
