The Jesus Prayer

The Jesus Prayer by Per-Olof Sjogren is a short book on the history and meaning of the prayer, "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me." The book is out of print but is available used from a number of places. It was written by a Swedish Lutheran pastor and is the only book on the Jesus Prayer that I have seen written by a Lutheran. It's full of good insights and very balanced. There is some mild pietism in one section but I would highly recommend the book to anyone who is interested in developing their prayer life.
