Summary

This book challenges its reader, convicting like a refining fire. As a theologian, Forsyth had first admired the liberal theology of the late 19th century, but then had abandoned it, feeling that it failed to address the seriousness of sin and justice. In this devotional examination of prayer, Forsyth prompts readers to probe their hearts as they commune with God. He delves deeply into human motivations, values, and understanding, surveying prayer’s practice and purpose at its most visceral foundations. Though difficult to read at times because so involved, those who study Forsyth’s book often come to treasure the experience.
