- I find this little book to be a very helpful and practical guide to praying the Jesus Prayer. Review by Gordon
I find this little book to be a very helpful and practical guide to praying the Jesus Prayer. I have a lot of books on the Jesus Prayer but I have found this one to be one that I find, surprisingly, to be the most accessible. I do like the deeper writings from the desert fathers but I find this book speaks to me much more as someone living in the 21st century struggling with the pace of life and mundane worries that can take all thoughts of prayer away from me so very easily once the first excitement of beginning to pray the Jesus Prayer has passed. I have not found a spiritual director to help me in praying the Jesus Prayer, but I do get a lot of encouragement from Jonathan Smith in this little gem of a book. (Posted on 18/03/2016)
