Finding God in a holy place : explorations of prayer in Durham Cathedral.

Cook, C. C. H. (2010) 'Finding God in a holy place : explorations of prayer in Durham Cathedral.', London: Continuum.

Abstract

'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.
