Reviews of To Pray and to Love

“Drawing on the vast riches of early monastic writers, Roberta Bondi's book on prayer is real, salty, and wise. ... Amid the welter of books on prayer and Christian spirituality, this one shines like Epiphany and will empower like Pentecost.”

“Bondi offers a beautifully simple and profound account of prayer as the desert fathers saw it: integrally connected to love of God and neighbor, but also leading to introspection which facilitates spiritual growth.”

“To Pray and to Love is for all persons who want to pray but do not know how, who pray but feel uncertain about it, and who pray happily but want to grow more deeply. For those who have been longing for prayer and yet have never prayed, the author offers some specific suggestions about attitudes, beliefs, and dispositions that get in the way of our prayer without us even noticing.”
