"Here is a no-nonsense theologian who goes for the jugular. In Forsyth's company we are aware of both the glory and the gravity of what we are doing when we go to our knees in prayer." -Eugene H. Peterson P. T. Forsyth is sometimes described as an English pre-cursor to Karl Barth. He was born in 1848 to a Scottish family of humble origins and later in life attended Aberdeen University, where he graduated with first-class honours in classical literature in 1869. In 1876 he was ordained and called to minister in Shipley, Yorkshire. In his early ministry in the Congregational Church, Forsyth fought orthodoxy and sought for the right to rethink Christian theology and pursue liberal thought. In 1878, however, Forsyth experienced a conversion from, in his own words, "being a Christian to being a believer, from a lover of love to an object of grace." A profound awareness of pastoral responsibility was awakened which radically altered the the course of his ministry. His conversion thrust him from the leadership of liberalism to a recovery of the theology of grace. Quickly, he became one of the better-known figures in British Nonconformity. In 1894, he received a call to Emmanuel College in Cambridge, where he preached his famous sermon, "Holy Father" in 1896. In 1901, he accepted a position as principal of Hackney Theological College, London where he remained until he died in 1921. Over his lifetime Forsyth published 25 books and more than 260 articles. He is often credited with recovering for his generation the reality and true dimensions of the grace of God.

Listening to someone else pray gives you an insight into their mind - their hopes, concerns, and understanding of their relationship with God. Spurgeon thought that prayer was a measure of the vitality of the church - he once ushered some visitors into the prayer meeting at his church with the words 'would you like to see the church's power plant?' These are Spurgeon's prayers taken down as he prayed them. You can learn a lot about how to pray by studying their structure and content. Each short prayer shows you the knowledge of the Bible he had and his understanding of human needs.

People in their later years face many changes, many that are not of their own choosing. Still Praying After All These Years offers 52 reassuring meditations that reassure readers that their lives still have meaning and that aging holds opportunities for spiritual growth.

Each meditation begins with a concern, question, or insight expressed in the author's conversations with people ages 75-100. The author provides psychological and theological insights, welcoming doubt, mystery, and the emotions that accompany aging. She invites readers to practice their faith by reflecting on some aspect of their life or undertaking an action. A brief prayer ends each meditation.

This book will help older readers feel less alone as they hear about others who have walked a similar path. Readers who are caregivers will be moved to empathize with the spiritual, emotional, and other challenges their loved one faces. Also an excellent resource for those who minister with the elderly.

We can be in danger of no longer really understanding the meaning of the Lord's Prayer simply because it is heard and spoken so often. Edgar illustrates the depth of the prayer as he shows it in the original context, and shows what that means for us in our context today and in the future. The Lord's Prayer defines our faith and defines the Biblical worldview.
