In Being in Love, William Johnston addresses the question of the purpose of prayer. He shares with the reader the discovery of new ways to a prayerful life that is both meditative and active. His message is to surrender in love to God, to love God with one's own being, through prayer. Here Being in Love shows us how to pray-with heart, mind, intellect and body-as a form of communicating with God, one another, and the world around us. Johnston reveals, using his relationship with the Eastern traditions as a backdrop, the need and importance of finding stillness in our inner lives. He demonstrates in a clear and practical way, how we can make prayer a place for meditation and personal growth.

"It is hard not to say `I told you so.' The first time I read Juliet Benner's `Oh Taste & See' column for Conversations journal I knew she had a rare gift for seeing---what others may miss---and describing---in a way that touches the soul---and I was pretty sure a wonderful book would follow. Here it is!" Gary W. Moon, executive editor of Conversations Juliet Benner was trained as a visual artist, so when she became a spiritual director, she found it natural to begin showing people how to meditate on Christian art treasures that are rooted in a passage of Scripture. She taught a way of encountering the Word behind both the words of Scripture and the artist's meditation on Scripture. This became a way of seeing art as an aid to contemplative prayer. In each chapter of this book you'll encounter a passage of Scripture and a corresponding piece of art. You'll be guided into deeper levels of meaning and reflection through the text and the questions at the end of each chapter. In the process you'll find yourself entering into a new experience of prayer and meditation in God's presence. "This is a beautiful and inspiring work that will help you reflect and respond to God not just with your mind but also with your heart and soul." Ruth Haley Barton, author of Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership "A delightful and lavish feast, it left me hungry for more!" Margaret Guenther, author of Holy Listening

In the past 20 years, Christians around the world have launched initiatives to reach Muslims, Communists, Hindus and other major unreached people groups but the Buddhist world has largely been overlooked. Hundreds of millions of Buddhists continue to live and die without any exposure to the Gospel. In Peoples of the Buddhist World, researcher and author Paul Hattaway graphically presents prayer profiles of more than 200 Buddhist people groups around the world, beautifully illustrated with color pictures throughout. In addition, experts have contributed articles on various aspects of Buddhism, helping the reader to learn, pray and work until that day when "the kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ and he will reign for ever and ever" (Rev. 11:15).--From publisher's description.

"Interreligious Prayer is a compass to help Christians find their way responsibly in the increasingly frequent interreligious encounters occasioned by national holidays, school assemblies, and religious festivals, as well as in communal responses to events such as war and peace, tragedies or natural disasters. The book addresses head-on the questions that inevitably arise in these encounters, such as "What is the basis for coming together to pray?" and "Are there any boundaries?"" "Fr. Thomas Ryan provides four different forms of interreligious prayer: "just being there," multireligious prayer, integrative religious prayer, and leadership of prayer at a multifaith gathering; examples of each form are given. The text details practical considerations relating to planning, and an appendix presents a compilation of prayer resources from Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Baha'i, and Native Americans that might be used in varying kinds of interreligious services."--BOOK JACKET.
