Art and Prayer by Timothy Verdon Book PDF Summary
"Prayer is natural for human beings, a spontaneous impulse common in all people. Yet, beyond instinct, there is a kind of prayer that's conscious and articulate, that we have to be taught. There is an "art of prayer," when faith and prayer become creative responses of creatures made in the image and likeness of their Creator relating to him with help of the imagination. Monsignor Timothy Verdon explores these essential interactions in this magnificent book. Explaining that images work in believers as tools teaching them how to turn to God, and aided by the illustrations of fine art throughout the centuries, Art and Prayer explores in detail how prayer can become the fruit of a sanctified imagination --- a way of beauty and turning to God." -- the back cover.
