Prayer & the Spiritual Life: A new DVD/CD series with Fr. Dennis Billy

Redemptorist Fr. Dennis Billy, seminary professor and author, presents 12 talks on prayer — the what, why and how — in a new DVD/CD series available now through Now You Know Media.

From the Now You Know website:

Through twelve brilliant and moving talks, you will discover what makes prayer uniquely Christian and examine the essential role of prayer in the spiritual life. This course is thoughtfully designed for those who seek to gain a more profound background on the theology of prayer.

You will look at the nature of prayer, its various forms, and the rhythm of prayer Christians should seek to maintain in their lives. You will also explore the Lord’s Prayer’s special place in the Christian prayer life, discovering why it is considered the “perfect prayer” and “summary of the Gospel.” You will then learn about such topics as lectio divina, the distinctions between ascetical and mystical prayer, and the various interpretations of Paul’s exhortation to “pray without ceasing” (1 Th 5:17).
