“At the risk of seeming to have engaged in an extravagant statement, I still venture to say that not one of us presently writing about religion in this country is better equipped by experience, skill, and devotion to write about prayer than is Bert Ghezzi. He lives what he speaks, and he speaks what he lives very, very well.”
—Phyllis Tickle, author of Prayer Is a Place and The Great Emergence

For the past forty-five years, beloved author Bert Ghezzi has begun each day with prayer. At first he had to work at doing it consistently, but eventually he couldn’t imagine starting his day without it. Through his discovery of the gift of daily prayer, he came to see God’s connection with us as a bountiful and permanent act of love.

In this delightful book Ghezzi shares his adventures in prayer, offering readers a winsome invitation to experience the promise and power of this faithful daily practice. For those who have struggled at cultivating a strong prayer life, he provides practical help for overcoming obstacles. He also covers how to pray, praying for and with others, and persevering in prayer. The book includes questions for further reflection and group discussion at the end of each chapter.

Bert Ghezzi (PhD, University of Notre Dame) is a popular speaker and columnist. He is the author or editor of numerous books, including The Heart of a Saint: Ten Ways to Grow Closer to God and The Sign of the Cross: Recovering the Power of the Ancient Prayer.

Adventures in Daily Prayer is a book to be experienced, not simply read. With topics such as praying in the Spirit and relying on God, it has the potential to lead to a richer, more rewarding prayer time for anyone seeking to draw near to God. It could also serve well as a study guide for prayer groups.”

The Weekly Hit List: January 3, 2014

iGods by Craig Detweiler was reviewed by Andrew Byers for Christianity Today.

“Where he excels most notably is in his careful, well-researched portrayal of the values and motivations behind the digital technologies so tightly woven into the fabric of our lives. By tracing the formation of the iGod institutions, his book constitutes ‘an active resistance to a thoughtless embrace.’

“We’re offered a theologically informed exposé of technological influences and a cautionary reminder that our media gadgets and their makers are far from neutral. Technology shapes us. And the technology of our day is continually insinuating that newer, faster, and sleeker are superior values.”
