    Landscapes of Prayer

    Finding God in Your World and Your Life

    Exploring new vistas of prayer

    Prayer is often perceived as a difficult, abstract exercise in which we close our eyes and seek God in an invisible, ethereal realm beyond our everyday experience.

    Despite Christian history's rich stock of vibrant prayer imagery, today much of it has fallen into obscurity. In this beautifully illustrated book, Margaret Silf explores seven images of prayer. She uses the concept of a landscape to share these prayers. Her landscapes are both classic and modern: the garden, the desert, the cave, the urban jungle, the mountaintop, the seashore, and the forest. All are fruitful areas for self-discovery, inviting us to connect with the mystery of God in our lives.

    Margaret Silf is a writer and a frequent leader of retreats and conferences. She has been trained by the Jesuits in accompanying people in prayer and is author of One Hundred Wisdom Stories and One Hundred More Wisdom Stories. She has been described by The Tablet as "one of the most talented spiritual writers."
