One Comment to Prayer Primer: Igniting a Fire Within

  1. Father Thomas Dubay, S.M was a well known retreat master and expert in the spiritual life A Marist Priest, Father took a Ph.D from Catholic University of America and taught at major seminary level for about fifteen years He spent the last three decades giving retreats and writing books over twenty at last count on various aspects of the spiritual life He is an expert on the teachings and writings of the two mystical doctors of the Church, John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila.

  2. This book reminds me of buying a whole big tray of baklava and it is all sweet around You can t say, I would rather choose this over that It is all sweet The author has a sweet spirit about him He is so knowledgeable in the Bible He is by no means a Bible thumper , Lord have mercy on them This author, Thomas Dubay, is saturated in the Bible and you taste the Bible with him in a fresh way and can t help but feel a fire indeed within you, that yearning for the Lord, intimacy with the Almighty that [...]


  3. There s much to be said for having met an author A good friend of mine and I met Father Dubay once before he died It is an occasion I recall with great fondness He opened the final talk of his retreat for our Carmelite sisters here in OKC to the general public and we went, books in hand, like two teenage groupies to meet their rock star idol We were not disappointed Father Dubay was within two years of his death at this time and a tiny little slip of a man I must confess I was surprised when I f [...]



  4. This book lives up to its title as a primer I rated this as 5 stars because I left the book convinced of Fr Dubay s main message if you aren t praying on a regular basis, its time to start now.The book goes through different types of prayer but certainly focuses most heavily on contemplative and meditative prayer As a primer he does not go into great depth on each of these types of prayer Rather, the text seems to be designed to leave the reader wanting to know about these subjects once the rea [...]


  5. Whether you have rarely if ever prayed, or pray often, but are finding your prayer life routine rather than invigorating, this book is for you Thomas Dubay explains what prayer is and is not He covers a multitude of topics regarding prayer and hits all the basic forms of Christian prayer mental, discursive, meditative, and contemplative He also explains how these forms may differ from other religions, such as Buddhism or Hinduism Though Dubay begins at the beginning this is a primer, after all h [...]


  6. This book is an introduction to Prayer It was interesting but I really got irritated when he would say something like contemplative prayer is not for beginners but i want to tell you about it anyway but wait I m not actually going to tell you anything at all ok that was really my synopsis of the chapter I also don t think books introducing a topic need to be so lacking in depth and information Maybe I should have picked up a advanced book I could definitely tell the author was a religious prie [...]


  7. Maldos prad iamokslis iebti vidin ugn pateisino mano l kes ius Autoriaus kalba laisva, o knygos strukt ra ai ki Papasakoja apie skirtingas maldos r is ir j prasm , pamotyvuoja nepasiduoti, nes motyvacija reguliariai melstis, kas band , ino, kad gali gana lengvai kristi.Stebukl knygoje tik tis neverta, bet viskas pateikta taip, kad noras karts nuo karto vis atsiversti tai vien , tai kit skyrel gali kilti.


  8. A tremendously helpful guide to prayer, which as Fr Dubay says in his introduction, treats the reader as an intelligent beginner The book covers all the major aspects of prayers the types of prayer and which is to be preferred , how to pray in a busy life, how to assess growth, and on I cannot recommend this book highly enough.


  9. Dubay is a MUST read for anyone serious about cultivating their faith and making sure that our lives become congruent with our beliefs If truth is what you seek Dubay is one of the great guides to help you get there without forcing you into submission You will gladly submit once you read his words of love given to us beyond all over loves by Jesus God himself.


  10. Another brilliant book by Fr Thomas Dubay I found the chapters towards the end, especially the one on gauging progress, to be particularly helpful This is a natural companion to his Deep Conversion Deep Prayer , which is one of my favorite books on the spiritual life.


  11. A great book that offers many things for reflection Take this one to the adoration chapel and have a conversation with Jesus


  12. This single volume had the most straightforward and comprehensive explication of prayer that you will find Packed with practical wisdom and simple I can do that Advice Highly recommended.





  13. Even though the book has the word Primer in the title, this book is for all seekers no matter what level you find yourself.
