KIRKUS REVIEW

As Lent again approaches many readers will be looking for new devotional books and guides to prayer. This is one that can be fully recommended. It is a ""how to do it"" book with a difference, and will be rewarding alike to those who cannot or will not pray, and to those who have always prayed. The one may learn that he has long prayed unawares, and the latter that the depths of prayer are so great as never to be fathomed, yet ever available to man who would keep in touch with the source of his being. The book is not one of vague musings or dry schemes and arid exhortations. It shows us pictures of life itself and says, ""Prayer is like that"". It is shown to be an activity of the whole man, body, mind and spirit, and a faculty alive in every man. The author, John Underwood Stephens, was formerly minister of the Mount Washington Presbyterian Church in New York, and is also the author of the widely used Prayers of the Christian Life (Oxford).
