Inhaltsangabe: It's not enough to pray.
To fully experience the transformation, restoration and renewal available through Christ (or as the beloved hymn says, "changed from glory into glory"), we need to grow in prayer.
Seems naturally simple, right? Most of us have matured from the "God-is-great, God-is-good" prayers of our childhood to more specific and sophisticated ones. Still, your prayer life may need more development to truly deepen your relationship with God. Consider that even the apostles asked of Jesus, "Lord, teach us to pray."
"True prayer moves us to act, and it is the root of our being transformed," Chilcote writes. "The way of Jesus is not a detached glory but a glory relevant. Prayer creates intimacy with God and reveals to us who we really are."
Changed from Glory into Glory will carry you on a Gospel prayer tour - from the Transfiguration through the Resurrection. As Chilcote says, ""We'll walk together through some of the most momentous events that shape our lives as Christians."" All the while, he guides us to see prayer's deeper purpose, which is to glimpse and commune with the divine.
Attentive prayer, responsive prayer, unceasing prayer and corporate worship are among the topics explored through art, hymns and reflections. Each chapter includes a scripture passage that introduces the central theme. Changed from Glory into Glory also features eight pages of beautiful color art reproductions to deepen your meditations.
The narrative of the biblical story and Chilcote's analysis of the multiple dimensions of prayer make this a perfect Lenten study for groups or individuals. Obviously, any time is a good time to pray or immerse yourself in a study about prayer. But if you're seeking a deeper walk with Christ, no time could be better.
This book is also ideal for Wesley scholars and seminarians.
