Beyond the Christian tradition, Praying Dangerously: Radical Reliance on God stands out as an almost mystical approach to prayer as communion with the divine. Drawing on Sufism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity, Regina Sara Ryan, a former Roman Catholic nun, writes with passion and energy about what she calls ""transformational"" prayer, which seeks to annihilate the individual soul in favor of union with the Divine.
