John Dalrymple

Foreward by John L. Bell

John Dalrymple wrote many spiritual classics, all stemming from his conviction that prayer is the most important element in Christian living. In this beautiful reissue of his bestselling Simple Prayer, he writes explicitly on prayer, teaching that the simple silent prayer of contemplation is attainable for anyone who seeks to try. What unfolds is a mature yet accessible consideration of all aspects of prayer and how it connects with politics, liberation, poverty, spiritual reading and the experience of the Dark Night.

Compelling and thought-provoking, Dalrymple offers a timeless and comprehensive outline of the classic experience of spiritual development which speaks afresh to today’s seekers.

John Dalrymple, who died in 1985, was a parish priest in Edinburgh, a lecturer, chaplain of St Andrew’s University, spiritual director and counsellor.
