Biblical Anthropology: Foundations and Teaching Models

Hebert Davi Liessi and Lucicleide Maria da Silva Liessi
Every human being seeks to be happy. However, it faces several challenges in this process. These challenges are considered as deserts that each person goes through on the journey of life. Spirituality and prayer are practices that go together and are used by many religions to help human beings live with more satisfaction and find themselves and God. This book brings biblical reflections to deepen the journey of intimacy with God. In addition, it seeks to systematize the pillars of prayer from the perspective of biblical spirituality and apply them to improving personal and spiritual life.
