Simon Tugwell is that rarity among preachers--a man of vast learning, critical intelligence and sparkling humor. "According to one ancient definition," he says, "prayer is keeping company with God. And that really throws us in at the deep end. Prayer is not another part for us to act, another skill for us to master...it is a relationship with God...This book is addressed to anyone who, like me, finds himself splashing and struggling and hoping that it will turn out to be 'swim' rather than 'sink,' though sometimes rather suspecting that it is going to be 'sink.' Should he find the time to stop and think about it, he will be embarrassingly aware that to a spectator safe on dry ground his antics will look utterly clownish and unintelligible, but there is nothing that can be done about that. We can only hope that our very foolishness and helplessness will draw the God of mercy to our assistance." (158 pages)
