This well-written and very readable book makes an excellent gift --- during the holidays or at any time of the year. Buy several and put them away for those hard-to-gift friends on your list: they'll thank you for this wonderful treasure!
Scholar and speaker Terry Glaspey focuses more on the "who to" than the "how to" here. The book explores ways to build a relationship with God, deepening your understanding of His character and His compassion. Works cited in these pages are among the enduring classics on prayer --- here Glaspey condenses those works to their most helpful passages and most insightful contributions.
Just when you think you've heard it all, learned it all on a generic topic like prayer --- along comes a writer with a rare gift for inspiring, teaching and guiding. Glaspey in print is much like Glaspey in person -- gracious, literate, humble, witty and well-informed.
While you're buying a batch of these books as gifts, be sure to save one for yourself! You'll come back to this small volume time and again in the days ahead. This is a book that rewards you for reading it --- by helping you experience God in new depth and dimension.
