KIRKUS REVIEW

This book talks about how praying is done. If philosophy, theology or logic get mixed up in its pages, this is not the deliberate plan, but rather the immediate necessity of the author, who never divorces prayer from these other disciplines provided they do not get into the way of praying. With deft touch and delicate illustration, he leads the reader step by step into an understanding of prayer in action, and it is very easy to go from almost any paragraph of the book into prayer that has immediate significance for the reader. The book is about Christian prayer, and makes no apology for the premise that all other prayer, while valid, and heard at the throne of Grace, nevertheless lacks the fullness of prayer within the life of the Church and in the name of Jesus Christ Our Lord. Lance Webb did not set out to convince skeptics and cynics that they ""should"" pray, but rather has tried to help men and women who are already praying into a wider and deeper conversation with the God whom they adore.
