In God's Presence: Theological Reflections on Prayer

SKU 9780827216150

By Marjorie Hewitt Suchocki


Suchocki explores the dynamics of prayer. If, she says, we regard prayer as a partnership with, not a manipulation of, God, we can find whole new dimensions in our prayer life.


"[Suchocki] questions the basic assumption of classical theism, namely, that God is unmoved by the joys and struggles of the world. According to Suchocki, such a God really has no need of our prayers. Against this classical model of God, she affirms the divine interdependence with the world."
