Overview

Fr. Thomas Dubay, a renowned teacher and writer on prayer and the spiritual life, presents a simple, profound and practical book on the most important of all human activities, communion with God.

Prayer Primer is written for intelligent adults (and teenagers) who want God and a serious prayer life, but it does not presuppose that they need or have a theological background. It does take up many questions rarely answered adequately in the classroom or from the pulpit, often not mentioned at all: Why pray? (be ready for some surprises) . . . Why vocal prayer is important and yet should be limited . . . What contemplation is and is not . . . Praying with Scripture . . . Family prayer - even how to introduce children to group meditation . . . Prayer in a busy life . . . Pitfalls and problems - together with solutions . . . Buddhism? New Age? Centering prayer? . . . What should you do when dry and empty and not at all inclined to pray? How do you even get started? . . . Where and how to begin? . . . Assessing progress . . . Growing in depth. All of these subjects, and more, are clearly and concisely explained for citizens of this 21st century.
