Using The Jesus Prayer
Steps To A Simpler Christian Life
by John Twisleton
Publisher:BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship)
'Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner'—simple words and heartfelt prayer long used in the Orthodox traditions and here in this small but insightful book given new presence for anybody of any churchmanship.
Twisleton blends modern day autobiographical reflections with scripture, bible study and the history of this prayer to bring it into the presence of a modern church that has much need of such deep simple prayer.
Mindfulness is a word we come across often these days, and here we find an ancient form of mindfulness that works wonders and brings us closer to God through the medium of simple honest words that reflect the reality of who He is and who we are.
A lovely to read book that is simple to grasp and reflect upon, even in it's more deeper aspects of study.
