James Martin SJ on Learning to Pray
Our friends at BBI – The Australian Institute of Theological Education recently hosted a chat with bestselling Jesuit author and speaker, Fr James Martin SJ, following the release of his latest book Learning to Pray: A Guide for Everyone.
Dr Michelle Jones and Fr James explored prayerful practices that are often simple and open to all, as many reviews of Learning to Pray suggest, including this from the US based National Catholic Reporter:
"For many Christians, prayer means attending Mass or service and saying prescribed prayers such as the Our Father. While making clear that such things can be important in a life of faith, Martin writes that they are not the only way to pray. For me, this is where Learning to Pray seemed to shine the brightest, by encouraging everyone to open their hearts, minds and ears to God in a wide array of options."

Grab some time, a coffee, and sit back and enjoy the conversation between Fr James and BBI – TAITE’s Dr Michelle Jones that offers some great insights for Australians – regardless of their spiritual persuasion – on how to discover, or rediscover prayer.
