Original Prayer: Teachings and Meditations on the Aramaic Jesus
play a sample
This 6-CD set is produced by Sounds True and contains a workshop with Neil Douglas-Klotz.
Original Prayer begins by exploring the many rich layers of meaning enfolded within New Testament scriptures written in Aramaic, the language that Jesus and his disciples actually spoke. Through specific insights revealed within the Aramaic Lord's Prayer, listeners learn over a dozen unique "body prayers," an ancient Middle Eastern form of meditation that engages the entire body in the contemplation of scripture. This is the same devotional practice used by the early Christians to delve into the Gospels, not as a scholarly exercise, but as a living, breathing experience of God.
Length: 6 CDs, 9 hours, with accompanying booklet.
As of August 2007 Sounds True only publishes the CD edition of this set. The cassette tape version is now out of print and no longer available.
