Truly Present: Practicing Prayer in the Liturgy
Dahill's book describes the human hunger for contemplative prayer, the need for rediscovering such prayer forms, and introduces Christian liturgical spirituality very broadly. Each chapter is devoted to two prayer practices grounded in the liturgy and shows how each contemplative practice both roots within and in turn also deepens our experience of worship.Sign up here www.lutherlink.org for an online book discussion with the author.
