Book Description: This classic of world spirituality recounts an anonymous 19th-century Russian peasant's attempts to follow St. Paul's advice to "pray without ceasing."
My Review and Thoughts:
This is one of those books I feel every Christian should read. It's truly a journey seeking out Jesus and coming to the Father in Heaven in an act of prayer.
It's a beautiful blend of a character wishing to be in the grasp of God always.
A prayer life of wordless beauty and wordless prayer that continues inside the mind, heart and soul always. A wonderful exploration of humbly seeking God through prayer. This book not only touches the inner soul, it becomes a moving tool to reach the essence of prayer.
It brings prayer to life in a form of ultimate spiritual enlightenment.
The character wishes to only know how to get closer to God through prayer. You become one with the Peasant. You walk his walk. You become his ultimate journey to God. You become the prayer life alongside him.
A dynamic approach to prayer. A spiritual journey capturing in the heart of one seeking to know God in prayer at all cost. Seek this book out. It's a quick read. It's a read that will touch you and linger with you long after it's over. I highly recommend this power book. Brilliant.
Would I return to it Again: Already have? I have highlighted so many passages from this book. It’s truly one that lingers and creates an inspirational beauty beyond words. A wonderful exploration of seeking God through prayer at all cost.
Would I Recommend. Absolutely. To anyone seeking to know God, seeking to explore faith and spirituality. This is a book that should be enjoyed, expressed, talked about in circles. Persons of faith should take this book and read it in all it’s wonderful glory.
Four Final Words: Inspiring. Touching. Brilliantly Heartfelt.
