Product Description

Praying with the Church invites you to get closer to the heart of Jesus' message by discovering the ancient rhythms of daily prayer at the heart of the early church. "This is the old path of praying as Jesus prayed," McKnight explains, "and in that path, we learn to pray along with the entire Church and not just by ourselves as individuals." Using practical, witty, and memorable examples from everyday life, McKnight explores how Jesus prayed, how the Psalms teach us to pray, and how Orthodox, Roman Catholics, Anglicans, and Benedictines pray. If you desire to return to the ancient devotional traditions of the Christian faith, Praying with the Church captures their essence and serves as a inspiring guide.

Editorial Reviews

If the old practice of praying the hours is something you have considered but wanted more instruction in, this volume would be a helpful place to begin. Beginning with a treatise on Jesus, practice of prayer and then moving into a historical discussion on how the Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican traditions practiced prayer, McKnight offers ways praying the hours (or the offices) connects with each.
