Drawing on the vast riches of early monastic writers, Roberta Bondi's book on prayer is real, salty, loving and wise. She invites us to keep such company with early Christian sources as to illuminate a way of praying, living, and thinking about life in mutuality with God. Amid the welter of books on prayer and Christian sprituality, this one shines like Epiphany and will empower like Pentecost.
Prayer is an integral aspect of the love of God and neighbor, which to many is the ultimate goal of a fulfilling Christian life. However, many want to find a way to pray but are unable to understand or justify prayer theologically. Still others believe that God will not support them in the midst of cosmic hurt. This book addresses these concerns.
