Customer Reviews for Paraclete Press Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path to God

Paraclete Press Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path to God

"This is the most invigorating and enabling book about prayer that I have seen in years! Wry, funny, accessible, wise beyond all appearances, and deeply spiritual, MacBeth warms the soul as well as the heart. So will praying in color." - Phyllis Tickle, compiler, The Divine Hours

Maybe you love color. Maybe you hunger to know God better. Maybe you are a visual or kinesthetic learner, a distractable or impatient soul, or a word-weary pray-er. Perhaps you struggle with a short attention span, a restless body, or a tendency to live in your head.

This new prayer form can take as little or as much time as you have or want to commit, from 15 minutes to a weekend retreat. "A new prayer form gives God an invitation and a new door to penetrate the locked cells of our hearts and minds," explains Sybil MacBeth. "For many of us, using only words to pray reduces God by the limits of our finite words."

Find a new connection with God as you "pray with the right side of your brain."

Sybil MacBeth is a mathematics instructor, a dancer, and the spouse of an Episcopal priest in Memphis, Tennessee. She has been leading workshops across the U.S. using Praying in Color for two years, now, and will soon be teaching others to do the same.

This is a terrific book about a new way of communicating with God. I used it with our Tween ministry and they loved it! I highly recommend it to anyone who is open to a new way to talk to God!

It really opened my eyes to the fact that there are different ways to pray. It made me realize that God just wants us to take the time to communicate with him and it really doesn't matter how we do it, just as long as we do!

Unbelievably simple; unbeleivably fun; unbelievably profound. I've watch my 5 yr old grandson do this for 35 minutes!!!!!! It's invigorating, encouraging - excellent for the memory impaired -theraputic - great for those laid up following surgery. Teens love it. So get coloring!
