Product Description

From the Back Cover

Common Prayer helps today's diverse church pray together across traditions and denominations. With an ear to the particulars of how various liturgical traditions pray, and using an advisory team of liturgy experts, the authors have created a tapestry of prayer that celebrates the best of each tradition. The book also includes a unique songbook composed of music and classic lyrics to over fifty songs from various traditions, including African spirituals, traditional hymns, Mennonite gathering songs, and Taize chants. Tools for prayer are scattered throughout to aid those who are unfamiliar with liturgy and to deepen the prayer life of those who are familiar with liturgical prayer. Ultimately, Common Prayer makes liturgy dance, taking the best of the old and bringing new life to it with a fresh fingerprint for the contemporary renewal of the church. Churches and individuals who desire a deeper prayer life and those familiar with Shane Claiborne and New Monasticism will enjoy the tools offered in this book as a fresh take on liturgy.

The book itself is great. However, there was an issue with ordering it. The softcover version is not, in fact, the same book. It is the travel version, which is an entirely different book. So if you want the full version, stick to the hard cover!

Generally, I am pleased with the book. As its title suggests, it is somewhat "radical" in the political sense, empahsizing a a social justice approach to Christianity, but without sacrificing the parallel and necessary element of Christianity, namely personal moral perfection. I was pleased to see that on January 22, the theme for the day was a painful reminder of the Supreme Court's decision in Roe vs. Wade and an injuction to pray for the lives lost to abortion. A good source for simplified yet effective communal prayer, especially in schools for students and staff.

I have been using this prayer book almost every morning for a few months now, and it has been very helpful for me. It draws me in to my prayer time, helps me to focus and centre myself, and then leaves a space to pray from the heart for as long as I want. The written prayers have both poetry and depth of theology. It is clearly trinitarian and speaks to both the human and divine natures of Jesus Christ. It relates our personal prayer time to the world around us and to the communion of saints that came before us and still surrounds us. I'm young and strong, but some may find the physical book itself heavy and cumbersome. Otherwise, I think it's the perfect prayer book.

Very thorough and very thoughtfully done. For those who are attracted to a more traditional, liturgical form of devotional worship, this is the book for you!

Confirmed in my youth in the Anglican Church of Canada, I am very fond of the old-style Anglican Book fo Common Prayer. This is very similar to that in flavour and content, yet more accessible to new Christians who are looking for more structure than the Evangelical movement currently provides. This is a very thoughtful guide to personal prayer and to corporate worship.
