A Sacred Primer: The Essential Guide to Quiet Time and Prayer

Elizabeth Neeld offers a primer–packed with ideas and inspirational recommendations for creating stillness and soul-tending devotion in daily living. Although the intention is not a new one–plenty of authors have cashed in on the “everyday sacred” premise–Neeld’s suggestions are original and eloquent, and reflect years of research rather than a whimsical, hot-selling idea. Chapters include “Encouraging a Spiritual Attitude,” “Experiencing the Sacred,” “Praying with Words,” and “Surviving the Windstorms.” At the end of each chapter, Neeld suggests specific tasks for helping the human more easily meet the divine.
