Reviews: from goodreads.
I would highly recommend this short book to someone who wants to be more intentional about praying.
He describes how to start, how to evolve and how to have both space and grace to begin to begin to pray. He unwinds old notions and presents the groundwork from which I hope to grow. I am very grateful for this book.
