The Literary Portals to Prayer series is the first truly new resource for personal prayer in years. Designed to be a prayer-starter in the "Lectio Divina" tradition, the portal has a passage from the Bible side-by-side with a selection from an author whose work has stood the test of time. Each turn of the page ties together literature and scripture with an insightful theme.
Charles Dickens could be satirical, ironic, and skeptical when it came to describing religious faith in his stories, yet he was one of the few great novelists of any era who was thoroughly immersed in the Bible.
This book is the perfect gift for fans of Dickens' work, as well as those who have yet to discover some of his writings, and will serve as a welcome resource for those seeking a way to reignite their prayer life.
