By Matthew Leonard. In the Foreword to Prayer Works, Scott Hahn, a noted theologian and author, says, "When I see Matt Leonard pray, I want to pray as he does." Now, that's a testimony! This book covers a wide range of topics with respect to prayer and its various stages. It starts with the basics of prayer and its purpose. Next, it defines specific stages of the spiritual journey: the Purgative, the Illuminative, and the Unitive. It also explores the differences among vocal, meditative, and contemplative prayer. The best part is the simple secret guaranteed to keep you on the straight path to God. Matthew takes you on this prayer journey with a humorous and matter of fact style. Prayer Works is an enlightening book for both beginners in prayer, and for those who wish to deepen their prayer life. Softcover, 155 pages.
