Prayer

By Philip Kerr
Narrated by Mark Zeisler / 13 hours 5 minutes

The New York Times bestselling author and renowned pastor explores the power of prayer

Christians are taught in their churches and schools that prayer is the most powerful way to experience God. But few receive instruction or guidance in how to make prayer genuinely meaningful. In Prayer, renowned pastor Timothy Keller delves into the many facets of this everyday act.

With his trademark insights and energy, Keller offers biblical guidance as well as specific prayers for certain situations, such as dealing with grief, loss, love, and forgiveness. He discusses ways to make prayers more personal and powerful, and how to establish a practice of prayer that works for each reader.

Dr. Keller’s previous books have sold more than one million copies. His Redeemer Presbyterian Church is not only a major presence in his home base of New York, it has also helped to launch more than two hundred fifty other churches in forty-eight cities around the world. His teachings have already helped millions, the majority of whom pray regularly. And with Prayer, he’ll show them how to find a deeper connection with God.

Prayer is continuing a conversation that God has started through his Word and his grace, which eventually becomes a full encounter with him.
If we give priority to the outer life, our inner life will be dark and scary. We will not know what to do with solitude. We will be deeply uncomfortable with self-examination, and we will have an increasingly short attention span for any kind of reflection.
Prayer turns theology into experience.

About the Author

Timothy Keller was born in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He became a Christian at university, was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in America and worked as a pastor for nine years. He was asked to start Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan in 1989, and under his leadership the church's congregation experienced unprecedented growth from 50 to 5000 members. His target audience consists mainly of urban professionals, whom he believes exhibit disproportionate influence over the culture and its ideas. The 'Influentials' Issue of New York Magazine featured Dr. Keller as "the most successful Christian evangelist in the city by recognizing that young professionals and artists are 'disproportionately influential' in creating the country's culture and that you have to meet this coveted demographic on its own terms." Timothy Keller is renowned for his clear, reasoned approach to Christian apologetics and his book The Reason For God: Belief in an Age Of Skepticism was named Book of the Year for 2008 by World Magazine. Timothy Keller lives in New York City with his wife Kathy and sons David, Michael and Jonathan.


Reviews

“It is daring to call any 21st century book a classic. Yet I don't think that it would be out of place for this masterly work by Tim Keller. . . . The book is comprehensive in its range, well thought through and eminently practical. Keller has probably read everything, ancient and modern on prayer. With engaging skill he helps us explore the mysterious world of prayer. He does so, not so much as an expert teaching principles, but as a praying man allowing us to eavesdrop on his intimate moments with God. ”

Inspire Magazine

“I have read many books on prayer, but Keller's stands head and shoulders above the rest. . . . Keller writes with a humble authority. He draws from deep wells of academic and personal knowledge of God and his writing is edifying in the truest sense of the word. ”

Preach Magazine

“This excellent book is for the ordinary reading Christian. It is excellent, firstly because it is comprehensive. Unlike nearly all the other works on prayer, it is theological and experiential and methodological . . . he deals fascinatingly and satisfyingly with the balance or tension between the mystical/emotional and the intellectual in prayer. ”
