Often, people feel drawn to prayer but are timid and unsure about how to pray. For over thirty years, Opening to God has de-mystified prayer for countless thousands. Friendly and inviting, Opening to God explains what prayer is all about, then turns to techniques that ready the soul to encounter God. Mining his rich experiences as a Jesuit missionary and spiritual director, Rev. Thomas Greene, S.J., shakes away the cobwebs and banishes stodgy assumptions about spiritual life that is fed by the practice of prayer. A must-have resource, both for beginners and practiced 'pray-ers' who want to cultivate a more meaningful prayer experience.
