35 of 35 people found the following review helpful By Steve R Peterson on October 11, 2003
Format: Perfect Paperback
Having read a number of books on Christian Spirituality over the last few years, I can't think of one single book that does as good a job as this book in both introducing a number of significant prayer practices and doing so with such vibrancy and depth. It is obvious that Daniel Wolpert has a feel for this subject that is born of broad and deep experience in both using these practices himself and in helping others enter into these practices in accessible and meaningful ways. Anyone looking for an excellant printed guide of ancient Christian prayer practices made very accessable to present use would do well to start with this book. For folks who already have been learning about and experiencing practices such as the Jesus Prayer, Lectio Divina, the Examen, journaling etc., this book will bring fresh insight, inspiration and integration into your thought and experience around these practices. This book is also an excellant resource for learning about and experiencing these practices in a group setting. Each chapter has excellant step by step concrete ideas for using these practices individually or in a group.

Format: Perfect Paperback
This is an exciting book about prayer. Wolpert's writing shows that he practices what he has set to paper.
Some older prayer traditions feel understandable and comfortable to use after reading Wolpert's book. Some creative prayer understandings make sense, e.g., the idea of group journaling and praying with nature. I especially like the way Wolpert identifies creativity as prayer. Of course God speaks through creative expression! There's also good news about the body--as in body prayer! Wolpert speaks graceful words to our often negative understandings of the body (or at least how we seem not to measure up to magazine cover standards).
This book is rooted in Christ, in the teachings of the Bible, in Christian tradition. It helps us open spiritually to God.

We are using this book in my congregation with a small group of 10 people in order to learn about individual and group contemplative prayer. It is excellent.

This book is very readable, practical and full of helpful ideas without being preachy. It speaks of difficulties through history with finding a life with God but the focus is on now and the need not only for finding space for God, but living life with God.

Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
Reading this book is like having your own spiritual director walking you step by step through a variety of spiritual practices that will draw you closer to God. It includes enough historical background to be interesting but not boring, and enough practical advice to help you as you search for new ways to go deeper with God.
