Prayer Takes Us Home: The Theology and Practice of Christian Prayer 

Gerhard Lohfink

Liturgical Press

A lot of people would like to learn to pray all over again. Others are not so sure they ought to pray. They want to know whether prayer will help them and, more than that, whether it will be of any use at all to our world.

This book gives an answer—not in the form of glib instructions, but by introducing the reader to the theology of prayer. It refers again and again to the Bible, especially the Psalms. At the same time, it speaks about personal experiences as well. Gerhard Lohfink writes in inviting, easy-to-read language, answering questions such as:
“To whom do we pray?”
“Does it make any sense to ask for things in prayer?”
“What happens in the Eucharistic Prayer?”
“What is so special about the Psalms?”
“How can I practice Christian meditation?”

This book offers an inviting approach to Christian prayer.

The Love That Is God: An Invitation to Christian Faith

Frederick Christian Bauerschmidt

Eerdmans

“God is love is the radical claim of Christianity,” writes Frederick Bauerschmidt at the beginning of this little meditation on the essentials of Christian faith. Throughout The Love That Is God, Bauerschmidt goes to work breathing life back into that claim, drawing from Scripture, great Christian and non-Christian writers of the past, and his own lived experience to show just how countercultural and subversive Christianity is actually meant to be.

In a rich yet accessible style reminiscent of C. S. Lewis and N. T. Wright, Bauerschmidt eschews the abstract and dogmatic in favor of the relational and inviting. His ecumenical vision offers something for everyone, from lifelong churchgoers and students of religion to the growing population of “nones” among younger generations who are increasingly seeking spiritual fulfillment outside of institutional Christianity. With further reading suggestions (both scriptural and nonscriptural) at the end of each chapter, The Love That Is God is the perfect starting point of a spiritual journey into deeper relationship with God.
