Reviews - What do our customers think?
Paths to Prayer book  May 13, 2007
By far the best book on different prayer styles I've ever read. Everyone in our study group is of the same opionion.
 
Stretch Your Ideas about Prayer  Dec 23, 2003
For those who are inside the church and are tired of same-old, same-old ways of praying and for those outside the circle of religious institutions but yearn for fresh ways to connect to your self and the Truth beyond yourself, here is a gold mine. Tricia Brown will stretch you by giving depth and variety. Enter this laboratory of prayer and experimenet with the author as your coach, and you will surely discover new parts of your soul and ways to express love in the world.
 
A Recipe Book Not A Gourmet Meal  Dec 21, 2003
Finally, I can begin to stop feeling guilty or deficient because I don't get up at 3am and pray on my knees for hours on a stone floor in the cold!Trisha Brown encourages us to explore and find the "how to pray" that works for us as individuals...maybe the stone floor one time, maybe the stream of consciousness conversation while driving down the road at another time.
I lead an adult education group at the church where I serve as DRE and we've been using this book as a resource and guide as we explore "ways and means" of prayer. We have been making our own sets of Anglican prayer beads, a new concept to many of the participants,and in the creation and construction of them we've discovered that that too is a way of prayer.
Thank you, Trisha, for helping to free us from "the one way" and opening doors to deeper, very personal ways to develop our relationship with a living God.
 
I learned so much!  Dec 19, 2003
This is a wonderful book on prayer. I learned over 40 ways to pray to God including the Wesley Covenant Prayer, Prayer Beads, the Tallith (the Jewish Prayer Shawl) and so many more. I now have a deeper and wider appreciation of the history of the Church. Thank you for this fine book.
 
worth reading  Dec 17, 2003
For th ose of us who want to learn how to pray...better, so to speak, this is a helpful book. I didn't realize there were so many "pathways."
