Reader-Submitted Review: Talking with God: Prayers, Meditations and Conversations for God-seekers by by Henry Baron

I have been amazed at the sensitivity of these talks with God, and have been blessed and enriched by them. Henry Baron has an unusual grasp of the human condition. His talks with God are insightful, honest, raw, disquieting, and comforting at the same time. Henry Baron uses words so well, with noble simplicity. Just the right words, usually short words, simple words, but just the right words.

I especially recommend this book for life-long Christians. I fear God really gets tired of most prayers. Predictable. Monotonous. Formulaic. Henry introduces us to a new genre of prayer—honest cries of the heart. Christians have all kinds of wonderings, questions, doubts, hopes, fears. These talks with God give voice to all of these things.

Many of these talks with God could be used word-for-word in worship settings.

I recommend it highly. (Exxel)
