In this book, Tim Keller offers practical help for dismantling our 'idols of the heart'. He explores different types of prayer as the tool for making these changes - reflective, meditative, confessional, and communal - and examines the specific gospel virtues that arise in our lives as a result.

Tim Keller's Counterfeit Gods located our main personal and social problems in 'idols of the heart'; this is essentially its sequel, a very practical book on how to dismantle those idols and bring about deep and permanent changes in our character and behaviour. Tim begins by focusing on the means for growth. The basic tool is prayer, including reflective prayer that expands self-knowledge; meditative prayer that makes beliefs real to the heart and changes personal identity; confession that cleanses the conscience and reshapes the affections; and communal prayer and worship that seals us into a life-changing community which renews human relationships. After exploring these means for change, Tim examines the gospel virtues - the specific changes in character that these measures can produce, and ends with an incredibly practical, workable section on daily, weekly, and monthly spiritual exercises and practices. This is a book that will teach you to pray - and in doing so, will change your life.

A fantastic theological and practical book on prayer
5 stars By Aaron, Feb 08 2017
Keller writes a very thorough book on Christian prayer. He gradually walks the readers from the why's and what's of prayer, towards the when's and how's. In doing so, developing a sound theology of prayer and then the biblical application of prayer. What I found particularly helpful was the well developed biblical perspectives on prayer; how Keller drew from theologians of the past, such as Calvin, Augustine and Luther, to consider their perspective and practice of prayer; and the provision of 'templates' on how readers might consider applying prayer in their daily lives.

This is a fantastic book, and I would highly recommend it to everyone!

A challenging and complex book on the notion of "prayer". Keller recounts the bible understanding of the notion of prayer and also the writings of influential christian leaders including Martin Luther on the meaning of prayer. Keller argues of the importance of prayer being based on biblical meanings of prayer and also examines the differences between prayer and meditation. An essential read on prayer.

Excellent Book on Prayer
5 stars By Ben, Jan 23 2017
This is an absolute must-read on Christian prayer. It is deeply biblical and theological while at the same time being very practical. Keller also engages with some common misconceptions about prayer (both in the wider culture but also in Christian circles) and highlights some of the dangers of these views. Particularly helpful was his section on 'untethered' prayer. Highly recommended.

5 stars By Ly, Jan 04 2017
This is another well recommended book by Keller. Keller refers closely to the bible and its references to the meaning and the importance of prayer. Keller also provides a detailed summary of the purpose of prayer and the forms of prayer that was practised by leading Christian leaders including Martin Luther, Augustine and John Calvin, among many.

Fantastic book on prayer
5 stars By Angus, Oct 01 2016
This is one of the better books on prayer, without doubt. Tim humbly refuses to attempt to put forth original ideas, reflections or thoughts on prayer; rather, he draws upon the work and prayer life of some of the church's greatest writers (such as Luther, Owen, Calvin). Despite it's fantastic theological explanation of prayer and it's place in our relationship with God, it's also a wonderfully practical book, as demonstrated by the prayer outline at the end of the book. A near must-read.
