Overview

Peter Kreeft brings his unique insights to this vital and oft’ neglected area of our spiritual lives. He claims he himself is still a beginner in prayer, and this book is for all those, like him, who feel that they are not good at praying but desire to become better at it. Kreeft offers simple-yet-profound advice and practical steps for developing a prayer life based on the time-tested wisdom of the saints and great spiritual writers, drawing especially from principles found in the classic from Brother Lawrence: The Practice of the Presence of God.

In short, straight-forward, and unsentimental chapters, Kreeft covers all the key areas necessary for understanding and developing that intimate form of communication with our creator that we call prayer.

Praise for the Print Edition

There’s no shortage of good doctrinal material today. But, for the post-Boomer generations, the burning question remains: how do I begin to pray? Peter Kreeft answers that question in a simple, direct way that will reach ordinary unchurched Americans—as well as devout Catholics who have hit a dry spell.
