PRAYER by George A. Buttrick

Email this review


As a speaker at Conferences, as Pastor of the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York, where he followed Henry Sloane Coffin, Dr. Buttrick has always appealed to a public, an intelligent and powerful public. The direct venture of private and corporate prayer, newly understood, is the door by which God may enter our world's dilemma and believing as much, the author divides his book into four small sections in which he discusses Jesus And Prayer, Prayer And The World, Prayer And Personality, and A Way of Prayer. Thus all possible questions are answered, all new possibilities explored. You will have many who buy all Dr. Buttrick's books, and this one, as January Religious Book Club Selection, will give you an opportunity to introduce him to a still wider audience. This is perhaps the season's leading book.
