In this heartfelt work of enlightenment and faith, Brigid Herman attempts to find meaning and value in prayer as a creative process. True prayer, she claims, is "man's loving response to the love of God." And since divine love is the supreme act, then man's only worthy response can be one of unreserved self-giving. rn rn Herman's inspired and compassionate views, first published nearly a century ago, make essential reading for anyone embarking on the path to salvation and inner peace.rn rn The wife of a Presbyterian minister, writer BRIGID EMILY HERMAN (1876-1923) was born in Prague and eventually settled in London.
