Seven landscapes of prayer, both classic and modern, are explored in this beautifully illustrated, contemporary book The garden, the desert, the cave, the urban jungle, the mountaintop, the seashore, and the forest--all are fruitful areas for self-discovery, inviting us to connect with the mystery of God in our lives. Prayer is often perceived as a difficult, abstract exercise in which we close our eyes and seek God beyond our everyday experience in an invisible, ethereal realm. Here, concrete connections between the world of prayer and our physical reality are made--allowing us to revel in both the physical and spiritual worlds simultaneously, and become that much closer to God in the process.
