For God AloneJ.Nicholas Latham, via The Good Book Stall
This is not to be dismissed as just another contribution to the glut of 'how to pray' books. The author describes her experiences with humility, common sense, honesty, encouragement and tact; '...prayer is a subject in which everyone gets an "A" .' (p. 7).
A welcoming 'Introduction' is followed by nine chapters, each of which stands on its own, such as a ‘Definition of Prayer’, 'Praying with Words', 'Toward an Anthropology' and 'a Cosmology' of prayer, 'The Jesus Prayer' and 'Praying with the Body'. The book is not, as she says, exhaustive of the methods of prayer. Most chapters end with a 'Conclusion' and 'For Further Reading and Exploration'. 'Summary Notes' conclude the book, including practical suggestions about and observable results of prayer. 'Notes' on the chapters and a 'Select Bibliography' could do with a bit of tidying up.
Bonnie Thurston writes with an engaging and conversational style, bringing in quotations and other sources as part of her own reflections. She emphasises that prayer is a gift from God - a gift she has received and which she wishes to share with us all in a way that is right for each person.
