Many adult believers feel boxed into a religion that is geared financially, institutionally and intellectually to children and is not at all prepared to serve adults. In this book, the author undercuts the puerile notions of prayer that have persisted into maturity, and establishes prayer as a radical response to life which lies at the center of spirituality. Exploring the psychological and social response which is prayer, he concludes that the calling to mysticism (experienced as enjoyment of life) and prophecy (experienced as the fight to share life and criticize its enemies) make up adult spirituality. Saying Yes to life and No to its imposters constitutes the simple but deep response of faith -- the belief that life itself is a gift.
