Finding God in a Holy Place by Chris Cook

Book Description

Focusing on Durham Cathedral, this book offers explorations of prayer in the context of the idea of holy places and would appeal to anyone interested in using places known to them to help develop their own experience of prayer. 'A holy place...is a place that becomes a 'gateway to heaven', writes Chris Cook, 'a place in which we are aware of the presence of God.' These places may be geographical or architectural, or they may be metaphorical: places of loss, or achievement, or transition. This book explores prayer in holy spaces: physical places where we can go to be nearer to God. It is focused on one particular place - Durham Cathedral (voted the country's best-loved building) - but it is designed to enable the reader to explore prayer in other holy places also. It is a practical guide to prayer which takes into account different personality types as well as the physical environment, and uses all of these to help the reader to draw closer to God.
