Experiencing Awe And Intimacy With God

by Timothy Keller


Price: £16.99
Publisher:Hodder and Stoughton
Published:January 0014

Any one acquainted in any way with Keller's work will know that this is going to be a good, well thought out, reasoned and more importantly accessible book on an incredibly important subject - Prayer.
There are admittedly many books on prayer but this one is a good addition to the stockpile, not least because of the beautiful overview of what prayer is you find in this book - not just a bibilical overview though, but one that pulls in other religions too and highlights the integralness of the idea of prayer to a spiritual life, in effect you find in this book a theology of prayer as well as a helpful guide and consideration to what prayer is and how we can approach it.
This is a book About Prayer more so than a book On Prayer, that's perhaps a subtle distinction but when you have finished reading this worthwhile book you will entirely understand the distinction I believe and you will feel your time was well spent in this submersive subject.

On a side note not related as such to the contents of the book, I would like to say that the larger print of the text makes this a very accessible book, and is welcomed.
