Ministry/Author: Way of Life Literature/David W. Cloud
Pages: 128
Description: This is a timely, well-documented warning of the contemplative prayer movement that is sweeping through “evangelicalism,” including the Southern Baptist Convention. We trace the origins of contemplative prayer to the benighted Roman Catholic monastic system and document its frightful spread through influential publishers, schools, and authors such as Bill Hybels, Rick Warren, Chuck Swindoll, David Jeremiah, Beth Moore, Mark Driscoll, Max Lucado, Philip Yancy, Lee Strobel, and Charles Stanley.

A major section deals with Richard Foster, his great influence, and his heresies. We look at popular contemplative practices such as centering prayer, visualizing prayer, breath prayer, and labyrinths. We examine the essential difference between biblical solitude and meditation and contemplative “silence.” Finally we document contemplative prayer as a bridge to paganism.
