In a hectic world, we so often struggle to find ways of growing in faith and especially deepening our experience of prayer. While many have been inspired by documentaries about contemplative prayer and monastic life, it remains a challenge to sustain disciplines of prayer and worship in the busyness of everyday life.
The Jesus Prayer of Eastern Orthodoxy, 'Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner', offers a simple yet profound way of developing such discipline. Thoroughly biblical, carried forward by the faith of the Church through the centuries, it stands as both unique gift and task for us. In this book John Twisleton offers practical guidance on how to use the prayer, as well as exploring the simplicity of life it offers.

•Written by the former Course Director of the Cambridge Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, Revd Dr Rodney Holder
•Follows a highly successful series of inspiring Bible reading notes, 'Our Creator God', written by Rodney for New Daylight, which combined insights from his science background and personal faith
•Journeys from Genesis to Revelation, exploring the great themes of Advent
•Draws on insights from Rodney's three 'heroes', John Polkinghorne, Georges Lemaitre and Dietrich Bonhoeffer
