I wish this book was longer! Other than that I don't have any negative comments about this book. I particularly liked the section on prayer however. In particular, his discussion of Origen, Gregory of Nyssa and John Cassian's thoughts on prayer. If nothing else, I'm taking away on prayer the two tips: 1) Pray frequently and briefly. 2) When I get distracted, say "O God, make speed to save me." ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802871976, Paperback)

In this simple, beautifully written book Rowan Williams explores four essential components of the Christian life: baptism, Bible, Eucharist, and prayer. Despite huge differences in Christian thinking and practice both today and in past centuries, he says, these four basic elements have remained constant and indispensable for the majority of those who call themselves Christians.

In accessible, pastoral terms Williams discusses the meaning and practice of baptism, the Bible, the Eucharist, and prayer, inviting readers to really think through the Christian faith and how to live it out. Questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter help readers to dig deeper and apply Williams's insights to their own lives.
