This book is a valuable lesson in a simple, basic prayer method. You get to take advantage of the author's extensive research, knowledge, and experience. If everyone who believes in prayer and a higher power practiced this prayer method, it would be hard to imagine that the world would not be a better place. This book shows that the traditional methods of prayer, although they have their place, don't have near the potential of this lost mode. I really liked this book, and would give it five stars for content. However, because it tended to be more of a lecture, it could have been better in guiding the listener/reader in the art of practical application. As a result, I gave only four stars.
This book can help lift the ceiling on our beliefs to achieve a more genuine connection with God through workable, sensible, honorable methods of prayer in the empowering way that was intended by the Ancients. Knowledge of the past can break the bonds of modern fear-based religious conditioning and dispel superstitions which encourage us to close our minds and refrain from questioning. The Lost Mode of Prayer provides a better understanding of our part in the process of prayer and can return both joy and responsibility to our relationship with the Divine. Gregg's endless enthusiasm, academic brilliance, spiritual wisdom, and utterly unpretentious manner make this an additionally delightful selection. Highly recommended.
The most amazing book I have had the pleasure of finding! Uplifting, informative and full of possibilities! Leaves you full of happiness and hope. Looking for additional books by this author.
The manner in which prayer can heal
I love listening to Gregg speak, as he has researched this and backs up his findings with more questions, like a true scientist.
I felt like I had wandered into a cheap hotel ballroom seminar with the presenter droning and rambling on while throwing in vague references to Dead Sea Scrolls and Egytian hyroglyphics nearly in the same breath. The only reason I listened to the whole thing was to see if he brought up crop circles, UFO's or telepathy with little gray men from Roswell NM!
First of all, understand that I never finished listening to this work. But I did get more than halfway through without learning a thing about any so-called Lost Mode of Prayer. As I listened to the author weave his fabric of myth, legend, misinterpretation and outright invention, the conviction grew in me that the art of selling snake oil is not dead. Not for the thinking mind.
