Reviews - What do customers think about in Times Like These: How We Pray?
How do we talk to the Lord? Aug 9, 2007
In the interest of full disclosure, I like to read books on prayer. I think that they help me within my own prayer life. I am also a Malcolm Boyd groupie. For over forty years, he has helped me express myself in a honest way to the Lord. This book is a collection of essays from different people on how they pray. It is so interesting and heartfelt. If you like books on prayer, I would recommend this book to you. These essays are from people who are facing death or dealing with grief or at other points within their life journey. Even if you don't personally agree with a particular viewpoint, it is usually worth reading and thinking about.
