Book Description

1 May 2009
Insights on what it means to have an intimate relationship with God, using Old and New Testament stories as a guide. What does it mean to have intimacy with God? Why do so many of us avoid this intimacy at all costs? What examples form Scripture might guide us in developing a close, prayerful relationship with God? In Seek My Face, William A. Barry SJ. provides thoughtful and easy-to-understand answers that can help anyone draw closer to God and grasp the surprising breadth of ways in which we and God can become good friends. Throughout the book, Fr. Barry introduces situations and personalities form both the Old and New Testaments to show readers the various ways in which people in the Bible drew closer to God. Abraham, Moses, the psalmist, Peter, Jesus - these individuals and more help readers see the many different ways we, too, can interact with God, and how confidently expressing to god our deepest emotions and most honest thoughts is exactly what the Divine desires from us. Fr. Barry encourages us to follow the Igantian idea of seeing ourselves in the Bible drew closer to God, Abraham. Moses, the psalmist, Peter, Jesus - these individuals and more help readers see the many different ways we, too, can interact with God, and how confidently expressing to God our deepest emotions and most honest thoughts is exactly what the Divine desires from us. As Fr. Barry encourages us to follow the Igantian idea of seeing ourselves in the Bible stories and experiencing each scriptural situation as if we were there, we grow increasingly comfortable seeing god as a friend. In the end, Fr Barry gently turns us away from our ambivalence or even fear of a relationship with God and toward a desire to seek God's face - at all times and in all ways

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Real Pathway to Authentic Prayer 3 Feb 2013
By Bernier Mayo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fr. Barry isn't afraid to analyze and recommend some very unconventional and very effective approaches to prayer without retreating into the 'safe,' but essentially dishonest coverups of the Christian's real feelings that indicate fear rather than honesty in prayer, e.g. one of his recommendations is to state your anger to God if that is how you are feeling. Don't shy from any other negative reactions to reality that are obstacles to your authentic prayer. Barry makes it clear that you don't have to put on your best spiritual Sunday suit to talk to God. He wants to hear from you, maybe even especially when you have a spiritual beef against Him or anybody else.
3.0 out of 5 stars Okay. 14 Sep 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Probably more well received by a less 'reformed' reader. Still some very good questions/answers about the more emotive side of prayer, you know the side the church is quite often missing.
