Sanctuary of the Soul: Journey into Meditative Prayer

At the very heart of God is the passionate disposition to be in loving fellowship with you.

Publisher's Summary

At the very heart of God is the passionate disposition to be in loving fellowship with you. From the human side of this equation it is meditative prayer that ushers us into this divine-human fellowship. Richard Foster, best-selling author and founder of Renovare, writes these words as one who has experienced what they describe. And in this new book he will beautifully guide you in this transformational way, that you might come to know deeper fellowship with God.

Weaving together quotes and stories from the lives of mothers and fathers of the faith as well as powerful encounters with God from his own life, Foster describes the riches of quieting your mind and heart in order to listen to and obey God more closely. Along the way, at perhaps his clearest, most practical best, he also provides the biblical teaching and step-by-step help you need to begin this prayer practice for yourself.

The journey into meditative prayer is not easy, but it is essential. And, as Foster shows, it's possible, even in the midst of the noisy, often chaotic world we live in. Your soul can become a sanctuary where you fellowship with the very God of the universe, who knows you and loves you deeply.

    "Good introduction to contemplative prayer"

    This is a good introduction to contemplative prayer. Not as deep as some of Thomas Merton's writings, which makes it easier to listen to. Very good.

    Story
    "Closer to God"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Foster writes in a way that draws you into expectation of a deeper relationship to God. And that expectation does not disappoint! Awesome book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Learning the simplicity of methods of meditation and tips on how to overcome hindrances to those quiet times.


    What does David Cochran Heath bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Soothing voice that draws you in. Like listening to a wise and deeply spiritual friend.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Method of meditation on the Lord that I have now used and has deepened my relationship to God.

    "NOT FOSTER'S BEST WORK"

    I have read several books by this author and this one did not hold my interest at all. In fact I did not bother to finish it -- same old, same old. Normally I cannot put Foster's work down because it is so thought-provoking. Can't win them all.
