LIVING PRAYER is the story of Robert Benson's quest across ecumenical and denominational lines into the mystery of prayer. Benson writes with an ability to make the ordinary events of life seem mystical and the mystical seem ordinary. He illustrates the full power of prayer, illuminates the reasons why we are drawn to pray, and bears witness to the grace of leading a life attuned to the voice of God--regardless of one's religious affiliation.
