I've read many books on prayer. They generally give you loads of reasons why you should pray from the bible, then wish you luck and end...
Furthermore, most books simply talk about *asking* God for things, called supplication by a lot of people. If you've ever wondered if there could be more to prayer than just asking for things; if you could just spend time with God; how God could and can be heard; of if God could heal through prayer, then this is the book for you. I don't think Jesus spent whole nights praying the weay we think of it, as in just asking God for things. I'm convinced he went to God to do this but also to seek refreshment, ask his advice and gain his perspective on things. All this and more is covered by this book.
Taste and See actually tells you *how* to pray and gives about 25 different ideas of ways to do it.
This book totally transformed my prayer life. It covers how to focus and begin, being in God's presence, praying about different things, imaginative prayer, contemplative prayer, meditation, reflection and more.
As may be obvious already, I love this book. To add to its virtues it is beautifully written, being easy to understand and use (it's more a workbook or prayer manual than a book you'd just sit down and read in one sitting), and is a book to enjoy.
My one warning would be that for those not from a Catholic tradition, or used to this type of prayer, the first steps may be a little unfamiliar or uncomforatble, but that'd not a neccessarily bad thing in itself. Buy it!
