“LORD, TEACH US TO PRAY”— the petition of the most intimate followers of Jesus—remains the heartfelt petition of every Christian disciple down to the present day.
The divine gift of the “Our Father” is the foundation of our life of prayer, but it is only the beginning of how Jesus leads us through himself to the Father. Shane Kapler’s Through, With, and In Him offers practical ways to open up this vital dimension of our spiritual lives, instructing us in how the Church’s sacraments and private devotions unite us to the prayer continually issuing forth from the heart of Christ. In this, as in all things, Christ is the Door. This new book by the author of The God Who is Love brings us to the threshold of that Door, and beyond.
