Other Prayers of Jesus
Praying Jesus' Way Is DangerouseBook - 2008
"Other Prayers of Jesus opens up a new and alternative way of understanding an important item of Christian spirituality. A call to adventure and freedom in the name of Jesus, it is a substantial work that follows his career in the gospels, showing the part that 'talking with God' (as the author prefers to call prayer) plays in the development of Jesus' ministry, in particular his inclusion of the outsider. Three important strains in Jesus' life of prayer are identified, namely 'reflection', 'contemplation' and meditation', with an examination of all the occasions on which the gospel writers picture Jesus in prayer. Prayer is a means of refreshment and openness to new experience rather than tedious duty or doleful self-torment."-- Provided by publisher.
