9780826497741: Deep Calls to Deep: Going Further in Prayer

Dom David Foster`s Reading with God was a great success and exceeded expectations. Here is the new book from a spiritual master. The author explores various ways or praying and how these lead into a deeper, quieter form of prayer. At the outset some basic theoretical ideas about prayer are explored; how to understand petitionary prayer, unanswered prayer, the idea of God speaking to us in prayer, of making His will known to us. But what people really need these days is help to remain focused. It is always important to talk from as practical a basis as possible about the contemplative dimensions of prayer. Ordinary life needs a structure for that kind of silent 'freewheeling' prayer. In this context, David Foster re-examines traditional forms of prayer through meditation and also considers the bridgehead in prayer that is reached when this kind of meditation is impossible. This book is steeped in the Benedictine tradition in which the author received his formation.

Review :

'[Contains] much which could help us all in deepening our prayer life.'Clem Jackson, Christian Marketplace (Clem Jackson, Christian Marketplace)

"This is a fluent and thoughtful book, practical in its approach, and accessible to a wide range of readers."
Dr Dunstan, St Edmund's College, Cambridge, Church Times

"A book on prayer that whets the appetite and leads into prayer is a good one. This is one such book ... The author manages to talk in a practical way and in a readable style about the contemplative dimensions of prayer. I recommend it for any one interested in deepening their prayer." - The Furrow

"Suffused with that same spirit of gentleness, good sense, humour and understanding of human nature ... which are often considered typically Benedictine traits ... It is the attention paid to the dynamic relationship between the personal and cosmic scales which sets this book apart from many other manuals of prayer ... We owe Dom David a debt of gratitude for sharing so generously of his wide reading, pastoral experience and, one suspects, hard-gained personal insights, all of which lend the book remarkable depth and breadth in fewer than 150 pages." The Downside Review, April 2009
