Joyce Rupp opens up the Scriptures that teach us how to pray and applies them to our daily lives. She encourages us "to pray always" through an awareness of God "in whom we live and move and have our being." Filled with personal experiences, examples, and life-lessons, Prayer is spiritual reading at its best for Christians of all denominations.
Prayer is the first in the Catholic Spirituality for Adults series. Developed by Orbis Books and RCL Benziger and meant to complement RCL Benziger's Christ Jesus the Way these books offer wonderful spiritual reading and are ideal for use in parish education.
Joyce Rupp is well-known for her work as a writer, spiritual midwife, international retreat leader, and conference speaker. She is the author of numerous bestselling books, including Praying Our Goodbyes, Open the Door, and Fragments of Your Ancient Name. Rupp is a member of the Servite (Servants of Mary) community and the codirector of the Institute of Compassionate Presence. She resides in Des Moines, Iowa.
This fantastic team of writers will surely make this series a superb tool for learning about the Catholic Faith.

"I look forward to seeing my bookshelves gradually fill up with works in the new series Christ Jesus, the Way. Soon John Shea, Marie Dennis, Virgil Elizondo, Ronald Rolheiser and others will line up next to Butlers Lives of the Saints. Why? Because this new, exciting series is likely to become a classic in spirituality."
