Description

Renowned pastor and New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet Timothy Keller explores the power of prayer.
Christians are taught in their churches and schools that prayer is the most powerful way to experience God. But few receive instruction or guidance in how to make prayer genuinely meaningful. In Prayer, renowned pastor Timothy Keller delves into the many facets of this everyday act.
With his trademark insights and energy, Keller offers biblical guidance as well as specific prayers for certain situations, such as dealing with grief, loss, love, and forgiveness. He discusses ways to make prayers more personal and powerful, and how to establish a practice of prayer that works for each reader.
Dr. Keller’s previous books have sold more than one million copies. His Redeemer Presbyterian Church is not only a major presence in his home base of New York, it has also helped to launch more than two hundred fifty other churches in forty-eight cities around the world. His teachings have already helped millions, the majority of whom pray regularly. And with Prayer, he’ll show them how to find a deeper connection with God.

        The founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan has created a definitive book on Christian prayer, in the tradition of his previous bestsellers (The Reason for God; The Meaning of Marriage). This study will be equally beneficial to seasoned followers of God and those simply seeking information on the topic. Keller’s own desire for a deeper prayer life prompted him to study what prayer is and how to pray. As he finds inspiration in current thought, the Psalms, and Reformation theology from Augustine, Luther, and Calvin, Keller balances erudite concepts with easy-to-understand information and practical application, showing that prayer is not only a conversation but also an encounter with God that seeks intimate knowing. Citing the Lord’s Prayer as a model for coming face to face with God, he contemplates prayers of meditation, praise, and forgiveness while addressing confusing subjects like the Trinity, praying in Jesus’ name, and why people need to pray at all. He distills his findings into 12 “touchstones” by which the effectiveness of prayer life can be measured, and includes outlines for how to get in the habit of daily prayer.

        A popular pastor puts the Bible back in prayer and sets the stage for an informed conversation with God. Keller (Encounters with Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions, 2013, etc.) brings his considerable biblical, historical and literary knowledge to bear on the concept of prayer. The best-selling author of titles like The Reason for God and The Prodigal God shines an intellectual light on a topic that is more often discussed in mystical terms. For Keller, prayer is not only an inner experience of God, but also a true conversation requiring significant preparation and practice. Founder of Manhattan's fast-growing Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Keller knows that his audience contains sophisticated Christians looking for more than simple daily devotions to guide their spiritual practices. They want context, and Keller enthusiastically obliges. Citing Scripture first and foremost-references to New Testament passages could keep a Bible study group busy for years-Keller also draws ideas from philosophers, theologians, scholars and other authors throughout the meticulously documented text. C.S. Lewis makes frequent appearances, as do St. Augustine, Martin Luther and John Calvin. This reliance on other sources of authority lends weight to Keller's arguments but comes at some cost to storytelling. Keller offers occasional anecdotes to illustrate his points, but on paper, his words lack the engaging cadence of the sermons that draw thousands to his church each week. Instead of offering a ready-made answer to the question of how we should pray, he calls on students to do their own work, giving them tons of material on the meaning of prayer before he offers any how-to advice. When instruction does come, it's not simple but careful, as in Keller's word-by-word examination of the familiar Lord's Prayer. For the author, building a solid foundation of understanding is an essential step in the journey toward an enlightened experience of God. Not always riveting reading, but Keller provides a contextually rich guide and companion to prayer.

        Prolific author Keller (Encounters with Jesus; The Meaning of Marriage; The Reason for God) is the pastor of a very successful Presbyterian church in New York City and has experience in church planting throughout the United States. Similar to his dedication to appeal to skeptics, the author's latest work is an extended discussion of the practice of prayer, which he views as both a conversation with, and encounter with, the Divine. His work is deeply and consistently rooted in his reading of the Bible, and he is never tempted to pander to the reader or digress. His writing offers the very image of the sober, right-thinking man of God. VERDICT Keller's book should exert a broad appeal to mainstream Christian churches, reading groups, and individuals.
