Summary of this Digital Ebook Purchas...
As the title indicates, this book is in a Q&A format. You don’t need to read it in sequence since there are cross-references in various answers to other questions dealt with in the book. Mental prayer is a prayer of the heart, not saying words written by someone else. It is fed by spiritual reading, particularly the Gospels where we encounter the person of Christ and let Him speak to our hearts through slow and prayerful reading.
This type of Digital Ebook Purchas is good for...
Although this book has a strong Catholic focus, it can benefit any Christian who is serious about developing a deep prayer life.
I especially liked...
Connie doesn’t state her own opinions but relies heavily on the wisdom of the Carmelite Doctors of the Church, St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross. She also covers current prayer “fads” which include Buddhist elements and which are very spiritually hazardous.
I didn't like...
