Prayer: The Great Conversation


Ignatius 1991

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In his typical lucid and original style, Peter Kreeft explores many aspects and questions about prayer, the center of our spiritual lives. In a series of imaginative dialogues, Kreeft shows how prayer can be an exciting adventure, an inexhaustible joy, and a source of wisdom and strength.

Written in a practical, yet inspirational style, this book addresses important areas like finding the time to pray, praying when you don’t feel like it, using the prayer book God wrote, how to overcome sin through contemplation, and how to see God everywhere. Kreeft communicates a vision for prayer that becomes a profound conversation with the God who creates, redeems, and sustains us—the most important conversation in human life.

Praise for the Print Edition

Written in engaging dialogue form, Prayer: The Great Conversation . . . takes you right along with all your doubts and hesitations into the place of freedom, love, beauty, and fulfillment, even in the midst of suffering, where God has always wanted you to be.

Ronda Chervin

Good books on prayer magnify God and leave you wanting to pray more than you do. I cannot imagine any Christian failing to find that this book of basic wisdom about prayer is a good book—indeed, a very good book.

J. I. Packer, professor of theology, Regent College
