Contemplative Prayer

Full Product Description

David Foster is the author of "Reading with God," a book that has sold many thousands of copies and has had considerable influence. Now here is a book which takes the discussion much further and much deeper and examines the theological and epistemological roots of contemplative prayer, taking developments in recent scholarship fully into account. Foster addresses a number of ways in which the Christian tradition of contemplative prayer has been discussed, exploring its dependence on underlying metaphysical realism and on the view that God cannot be perceived by our physical senses. Rescuing the concept of religious experience, he argues that the personal and, in a significant way, individual exercise of contemplative prayer can be both cognitive and meaningful. This account of contemplative prayer is faithful to the mainstream Christian tradition while also examining and exploring issues raised by metaphysics and ontology, epistemology and philosophy.

Contemplative Prayer by David Foster was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in May 2015 and is our 55636th best seller. The ISBN for Contemplative Prayer is 9781408187104.
