Reviews - What do customers think about Prayer - 10th Anniversary Edition: Finding the Heart's True Home?

Piercing my Heart...  Mar 11, 2007
God used this wonderful book to pierce my heart with His truth. He has opened my eyes to what prayer really is and deepend my desire to be in converation with Him. This book has taught me new ways to approach The Throne and a new understanding about what it means to intercede for those I love.
How to methods of prayer  Jan 11, 2007
I am in a study/prayer group which is using this book as a guide. I find it helpful to discover new depth in prayer.
The reality of a functional prayer life.  Jan 4, 2007
Richard Foster has given me a sense of literacy in the realm of something I've fumbled through most of my Christian life-Prayer.

His manner of dealing with the specifics of prayer, the different kinds of prayer and the purpose of prayer in each chapter have given me something to grasp in the illusory world of communing with God. The idea of communication with an invisible God which Paul charecterises as dim and dark is less foreboding in the light of Richard Foster's interpretation of scripture.

His depiction of personal experiences, which aren't given to fluff or hyperbole, have solidified my resolve to pursue a life of prayer.
Excellent overview of prayer  Nov 28, 2006
Richard Foster explains different types of prayer each having its own chapter. The less controversial aspects of prayer tend to be in the front of the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a richer prayer life, is willing to learn and doesn't have to agree with everything an author says in order to appreciate the book.
A Classic in Christian Spirituality  Apr 6, 2006
If I were to own one book on prayer, this would be the one. Foster has spent a lifetime teaching prayer and the spiritual disciplines. This book is the distillation of a profound life. His teaching is clear, his thinking incisive. I have used and recommended this volume (and Foster's Celebration of Discipline) for years. After a decade on the shelf, I worked my way through it again this year. I was awed by new insights. It reminded me of Mark Twain's comment about his father, "When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much the old man had learnt in seven years."
