Among the prayers explored are those by Abraham, Moses, Hannah, David, Solomon, Jonah, Jeremiah, Hezekiah, Ezra, Nehemiah, Daniel, and Job.

    Walter Brueggemann never lets me down. I am using this book to lead a Lenten study on prayer. Those listening and discussing this subject have had many good things to say. The book has been extremely helpful.
