Item description for The Struggle of Prayer by Donald G. Bloesch...

Bloesch asserts that true prayer is not humanity rising to God in order to become one with him (the mystical ideal), but God reaching out to humanity and calling for a response of obedience.

Publishers Description
The key to prayer is "not our action in preparing ourselves, but God's action in revealing himself," writes Dr. Donald G. Bloesch of Dubuque Theological Seminary. True prayer is not humanity rising to God in order to become one with him (the mystical ideal), but God reaching out to humanity and calling for a response of obedience. It is the constant struggle to take hold of the outstretched hand of God. This striving with a personal God is foundational to biblical prayer, stresses Dr. Bloesch. In "The Struggle of Prayer," he outlines an evangelical spirituality that has at its heart the "outpouring of the soul before a living God."

Donald G. Bloesch (1928 2010) was a noted American evangelical theologian. From 1957 until his retirement in 1992, he was a professor of theology at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa, where he continued as a professor emeritus. For more than forty years, he published scholarly yet accessible works that generally defend traditional Protestant beliefs and practices while seeking to remain in the mainstream of modern Protestant theological thought. He characterized himself a progressive evangelical or Ecumenical orthodox, criticizing the excesses of both the theological left and right. Bloesch s pietistic background and personal spiritual life lay at the heart of understanding his theology.


Donald G. Bloesch was born in 1928 and died in 2010.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Struggle of Prayer?

The Art of Holy argument with God  Mar 22, 2003
I have a Calvinistic view of prayer and divine Sovereingty and this book was a challenge to read, all the more challenging because the men Bloesch quoted from were Reformers. The advantages of Calvinistic theology are obvious, the only drawback is that many ask, what is the use of man praying? Bloesch engages the reader into the answer. This book will cause many Calvinists and Arminians to wrestle all the more deeply with the Living God. The interesting factors are that DB uses are:

The Prophetic Prayer (used by the Reformers)

The Mystic Prayer (Used by Catholic-Anglicans)

And the dangers of both extremes
