Reviews - What do customers think about Heart of Prayer?
Honest! Sep 21, 2008
The good thing about Barrs book on prayer, is that it doesn't leave you feeling guilty about your poor prayerlife. Barr is honest and doesn't give the reader a 'new law' how you should pray. Barrs book is very stimulating. Quite a relief.
Heart of Prayer Apr 12, 2008
I was not surprised by the author's fundamental Calvanistic perspective. I think his warnings regarding Eastern Mysticism warrant heeding, but was dissappointed the suggestion of contemplative prayer is outside biblical boundaries and author's approach is akin to throwing the baby out with the bath water.
