Book Review — In Constant Prayer

I received In Constant Prayer from Thomas Nelson for a book review. I am under no obligation to write a positive review.

In Constant Prayer by Robert Benson is an invitation to take up the ancient stream of the daily office. Growing up Pentecostal, it has only been in the last ten years I’ve more fully explored the liturgical stream of Christianity. This book is in that stream. It is a call to simplicity. Find a morning prayer and evening prayer liturgy that fits and pray. Don’t just talk about prayer. Pray.

Benson is open and honest about his own journey. He writes as a poet and artist, not as a theologian, and it is a refreshing read.

I find myself challenged by his words. The thoughts are simple. His examples are easy to follow and powerful. Let us enter into this great stream of the Church and find the river of joy in prayer.
