A wonderful resource for anyone who wants to grow closer to God Dec 18, 2007
I should just buy a dozen of these books at a time. I keep giving them to people who ask about growing closer to God through prayer. A wonderful resource for beginners and a refreshing look at prayer for "seasoned" prayers.

A Very Practical Guide To Christian Discernment Jun 16, 2000
Opening to God is about just that, opening to God's will and his movements within the soul and in the world. It is a very practical guide to discernment. I have used it with high school students who sometimes found the vocabulary and some concepts beyond them, and it is not full of poetic glimpses of the Divine mystery. It is a well grounded and faith filled view of how the Christian can faithfully seek the will of God.
Outstanding--Don't miss this one! May 7, 2000
This is an excellent book which I would reccommend to any Christian who wants to develop a more meaningful prayer relationship with God. I've read numerous books on prayer, but this one far outshines any of the others. Concise and practical, it is also very understandable and readable for the average layman. If you want to learn how to greatly improve your prayer life, snatch this one up!
