The Meaning of Prayer
Cosimo Classics, 10 Mar 2016 - 212 sayfa
Harry Emerson Fosdick was one of the most popular liberal preachers of the early twentieth century, and his The Meaning of Prayer is considered by many one of the finest studies of the meditative communion with God. This lovely little book features daily devotional readings focused on understanding prayer, reflecting upon: . The Naturalness of Prayer . Prayer and the Goodness of God . Hindrances and Difficulties . Unanswered Prayer . Prayer as Dominant Desire . Unselfishness in Prayer and other issues arising from conversing with the divine. This warm, friendly guidebook to a profoundly personal act remains an important exploration of one of the world's dominant faiths... just as it was when it was first published in 1915. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Fosdick's The Manhood of the Master and The Meaning of Faith.

This was a classic of its time and it is well worth visiting now. This is one of the very formative books in my library and I will refer to it over and over again. Tam incelemeyi okuyun
