Is it really possible to talk to God? Does he listen to us? How do we know what to say? Will it make any difference if we pray? Prayer is central to Christian faith and life, and such questions are fundamental. While much teaching on prayer addresses practical issues and is experience-orientated, Graeme Goldsworthy's conviction is that good practice comes from a foundation of good biblical understanding. Using a biblical-theological approach, he examines the principles that lie behind particular texts in Scripture, and maps out the 'progress' of prayer from Genesis to Revelation. He explains the basis for prayer, its role in our fellowship with God, and what is involved in Christian prayer. Above all, his desire is to encourage Christians in their praying, through a better understanding of, and reflection on, the 'big story' of the whole Bible.
