Common Prayer helps todays 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.
Shane Claiborne is an activist, author of Jesus for President, coauthor of Common Prayer, and is a founder of The Simple Way, a community in inner-city Philadelphia that has helped birth and connect radical faith communities around the world.
Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove is an associate minister at St. Johns Baptist Church. A graduate of Duke Divinity, Jonathan is engaged in reconciliation efforts in Durham, North Carolina, directs the School for Conversion, and is a sought after speaker and author of several books. The Rutba Hoouse, where Jonathan lives with his wife, Leah, their son, JaiMichael, daughter Nora Ann, and other friends, is a monastic community that prays, eats, and lives together, welcoming neighbors and the homeless.

Dr. Gordon Balfour5 Stars Out Of 5A great book for personal devotionsDecember 22, 2010Dr. Gordon BalfourQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5An excellent work to use for directing prayers and devotional thoughts as an individual, couple or a group. I was so impressed we have bought 5 copies and will use it for our morning devotions in our company through the weekdays. My wife and I also intend to use it to guide our devotions together for 2011. Varied, interesting, concise and direct - it will help people focus on God and praying through the church year together with Christians around the world. A most worthwhile purchase!
