  • John Gill’s comprehensive study of the Jesus Prayer considers an ancient mystical prayer practice from the Christian East. He discusses the historical development of the prayer and its basis in scripture, patristic spirituality, theology, and psychology. He also compares the Jesus Prayer with prayer practices in the Christian West, demonstrating various similarities and differences.

    Having developed within the heart of the Christian tradition, the Jesus Prayer is a personal prayer expressing fundamental Christian faith; it is therefore a prayer which can hold universal appeal to Christians of all denominations.

    The book also includes guidance for those who want to learn to use the Jesus Prayer as part of their spiritual practice and suggestions for further reading.
