Adventures In Prayer

by Charles Henry Brent

Condition: Good+/None


This book is in good condition. There is some wear to the cover on the front, back and spine. The edges have wear also but in particular on the spine. There is some bumping to the corners. The gilt lettering on the spine is fading.There is a dedication from one priest to another on the front end page. The pages are tanned and yellowed. The binding is tight and solid.

"The spirit of Bishop Brent's Prayers, both published and private, can best be interpreted by three statements of his own: "An artistic prayer, a prayer carefully prepared, so far from being less is more spiritual by virtue of its literary finish." Again he records: "My father, were it not for prayer which opens wide the door to Thy heart, where would I be? Blessed be Thy goodness in making it easy for Thy children to approach Thee. Nothing human is too small for Thee to care for. Thy understanding caress suits every sorrow; Thy wise counsel illumines every problem; Thy limitless pity lightens every burden. Hence it is with confidence I bring to Thee my prattle." Later he finely declares: "No man is safe, unless he swings his life between a risk and an opportunity." The first statement justifies his conscious will to pray beautifully;the second permits him free and ingenuous phrasing; the last indicates his lifelong passion for adventure into the Divine." - Introduction by S.S. Drury, Adventures In Prayer
