Saint Benedict's Prayer Book for Beginners

Front Cover
Gracewing Publishing, Jan 31, 1994 - Religion - 189 pages
Some may think that the point of prayer is to get our own way with extra-terrestrial help, or to save us from facing the problems of life, or to provide an escape from 'reality', or to give an emotional uplift that makes you feel food. Some may think that prayer is a way of expanding our consciousness which is achieved by our own discipline and personal effort at self-improvement. These are caricatures of what Christian prayer really is. There may be a strand of truth in some of them, but they miss the real point of prayer.

This book appears upside down on my computer. I think it may need to be righted so people can read it.
