At the very heart of God is the passionate disposition to be in loving fellowship with you. From the human side of this equation it is meditative prayer that ushers us into this divine-human fellowship. Richard Foster, best-selling author and founder of Renovare, writes these words as one who has experienced what they describe. And in this new book he will beautifully guide you in this transformational way, that you might come to know deeper fellowship with God.

Weaving together quotes and stories from the lives of mothers and fathers of the faith as well as powerful encounters with God from his own life, Foster describes the riches of quieting your mind and heart in order to listen to and obey God more closely. Along the way, at perhaps his clearest, most practical best, he also provides the biblical teaching and step-by-step help you need to begin this prayer practice for yourself.

The journey into meditative prayer is not easy, but it is essential. And, as Foster shows, it's possible, even in the midst of the noisy, often chaotic world we live in. Your soul can become a sanctuary where you fellowship with the very God of the universe, who knows you and loves you deeply.

    " Very, very good. Foster says that the the major impediment to a mature Christian life in this generation is distraction. The practice of meditative prayer is the antidote for what ails us. Now I just need to do it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Libby | 3/4/2013

    " Foster combines insights from numerous practitioners of listening prayer along with his own insights. This book isn't original but is a good compilation of much wisdom. "

    " I think this is one of Richard's best books ever -- clear, helpful, insightful, honest, welcoming, and warm. It's a book to which I'll return again and again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 5/21/2012

    " This was a quick read, but also a good read. Foster gives some instruction and examples on Meditative prayer, but probably the best advice he gives is that you cannot learn this from reading a book, you learn it from doing it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim Herrington | 1/20/2012

    " Richard Foster teaches the spiritual discipline of meditation. An excellent, practical read for anyone wanting to master this discipline. "

    " I think this is one of Richard's best books ever -- clear, helpful, insightful, honest, welcoming, and warm. It's a book to which I'll return again and again.
