Dom David Foster's Reading with God was a great success and exceeded expectations. Here is the new book from a spiritual master. The author explores various ways or praying and how these lead into a deeper, quieter form of prayer. At the outset some basic theoretical ideas about prayer are explored; how to understand petitionary prayer, unanswered prayer, the idea of God speaking to us in prayer, of making His will known to us. But what people really need these days is help to remain focused. It is always important to talk from as practical a basis as possible about the contemplative dimensions of prayer. Ordinary life needs a structure for that kind of silent 'freewheeling' prayer. In this context, David Foster re-examines traditional forms of prayer through meditation and also considers the bridgehead in prayer that is reached when this kind of meditation is impossible. This book is steeped in the Benedictine tradition in which the author received his formation.
