Greeted with ecumenical praise and enthusiastic reviews upon its first printing, this popular book on prayer continues to provide comfort and inspiration. Ideal for group discussion.

Peter Baelz, formerly Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology at Oxford, and later Dean of Durham, contends that to ask the question "Does prayer work?" reveals a gross misconception of what prayer actually is. Just as music and art need no practical justification, so prayer is not a utilitarian thing, reduced to a transaction (i.e. a way to get what one wants). Instead, the author sees prayer as an element in a shared relationship with God.

"This valuable little book answers many of the nagging everyday questions about prayer and may also open channels of new thought for a wide reading audience." (Booklist, American Library Association)
