Review quote

"In this marvellous collection, Dr. Stephanie Dowrick offers what so many of us desire: an authentic invitation into the mystery of prayer. This is a book to cherish. But more than this, it is one to "use" as a pathway into greater awareness, deeper connection, and a more profound sense of gratitude for the gift of life. What could be more welcome in times like these, when a trustworthy guide to the spiritual life like this one is so urgently needed?" --Dr. Mark S. Burrows, professor of theology and spirituality and author of a new translation of Rainer Maria Rilke's "Prayers of a Young Poet"
