This book is a celebration of the one hundred year history of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity and a wonderful resource for understanding the theology and practice of common prayer for the reconciliation of the church.

Each essayist offers significant insights into the history, theology, and spirituality of the Week of prayer in particular, and of ecumenical prayer in general.
