Prayer Primer: Igniting a Fire Within Jan 4, 2007
Excellent book. Used as a text with the University of Dayton's Virtual Learning Communities for Faith Formation. While not overly simplistic, it does provide a concrete and easily approachable introduction to the practice of various forms of Christian prayer.

Excellent Book Feb 17, 2006
This book is intended for the intelligent person who considers him/herself a beginner in prayer. It introduces the various types of prayer in a very understandable manner. Those who are familiar with Thomas DuBay already know that he is a wholehearted Christian who does not let society set the bar for his teachings. Those who are interested in persuing the Christian life with vigor should pick up this book or "Happy Are You Poor," another very thought provoking book.
Great Book on Prayer Apr 26, 2003
What is prayer? Why do we pray? Is all prayer the same? These are questions that many people do not know, or maybe do not even wonder about, yet it is so important. All Christians pray, or ought to, and this book explains the basics of it. Whether you feel a need to enhance your prayer life, or whether you are just curious about what you never were taught on the subject, this book makes an excellent read. I believe this book would be greatly beneficial for any Christian. It is filled with scriptural references throughout, as well as references to other sources such as the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and others by Dubay. It reads very fast, and one may feel inclined to read more on the subject, but the book gives you all you need to get going in the right direction, which is the most important thing. Very orthodox, by an expert on prayer, this book is a great read for Catholics. It would undoubtedly be of great use to protestants as well.
