Our relationship with God is personal as well as communal. Jesus is personal as well as cosmic. God is immanent as well as transcendent. He is the God of persons: The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Much has been written about the communal, liturgical aspect of Orthodoxy. Drawing upon the rich resources of Sacred Tradition this book shows how faith is also personal; prayer is personal; the sacraments are personal; the creed is personal; Sacred Tradition is personal; spirituality is personal; the Trinity is personal, etc. In fact, if faith is not personal it is not real. The ultimate purpose of this book is to help every Christian establish a daily personal relationship with Jesus. Revised and expanded. 3rd printing.

Reading this book set my faith on a new course. Although I've been Orthodox my entire life, I feel like this book helped me conceptualize my relationship to God in a completely new way and view Him as someone to engage with personally and not just a distant target to throw prayers at. My prayers have improved substantially since reading this book. I recommend this book very, very highly, and I wish it were more widely known!
