Fr. Thomas Dubay, a renowned teacher and writer on prayer and the spiritual life, presents a simple, profound and practical book on the most important of all human activities, communion with God.

Prayer Primer is written for intelligent adults (and teenagers) who want God and a serious prayer life, but it does not presuppose that they need or have a theological background. It does take up many questions rarely answered adequately in the classroom or from the pulpit, often not mentioned at all: Why pray? (be ready for some surprises) … Why vocal prayer is important and yet should be limited … What contemplation is and is not … Praying with Scripture … Family prayer - even how to introduce children to group meditation … Prayer in a busy life … Pitfalls and problems - together with solutions … Buddhism? New Age? Centering prayer? … What should you do when dry and empty and not at all inclined to pray? How do you even get started? … Where and how to begin? … Assessing progress … Growing in depth. All of these subjects, and more, are clearly and concisely explained for citizens of this 21st century.

Fr. Thomas Dubay, S.M.

“Of the many books written on prayer, Prayer Primer is unique. Father Dubay is a master on this subject. It is a rare gift to have a simple primer written by such a man. It is utterly sound, trustworthy and practical.”
