Summary

Peter Kreeft brings his unique insights to this most important area of our spiritual lives. He claims he himself is still a beginner in prayer, and this book is for all those, like him, who feel that they are not good at praying but desire to become much better at it. Thus, Kreeft offers simple, but profound advice and practical steps for developing a prayer life based on the time-tested wisdom of the saints and great spiritual writers, especially the principles found in Brother Lawrence's classic, The Practice of the Presence of God

In short, straight-forward, and unsentimental chapters, Kreeft covers all the key areas for understanding and developing that intimate form of communication with our creator that we call prayer. He covers such areas as the necessity of prayer, various motives and methods, steps, patience, suffering, sin, faith, and grace.

The references to the saints were excellent. The pace and logical structure efficient and plain speaking. A very good book.

Beautiful and practical!

This is the first book I have read by this author and I am inspired to read all his work.
Prayer for Beginners is beautiful and practical. It's easy to understand, interesting to read and leaves a reader with a profound desire to pray and love God. Thank you Peter Kreeft!
If you get it on audible, Karen Savage performance is 5 🌟! I highly recommend it!

Great book

This is a great book that needs to be read slowly and listened to. I would recommend it to anyone who is seriously looking for help in their prayer life.
