Publisher Description

Experience a deeper prayer life through this fresh take on ancient liturgy for believers today.

Designed to help individuals, families, and congregations pray together across denominations, this book of common prayer will help you and your community join together each day with the same songs, scriptures, and prayers. Composed under an advisory team of liturgy experts, these three influential and inspiring authors have created Common Prayer--a tapestry of prayer that will help the church be one as God is one.

This universal prayer book allows readers to greet each day together, remembering significant dates and Christian heroes in church history, as well as important historic dates in the struggle for freedom and justice. There are morning prayers for each day of the year, evening prayers for each of the seven days of the week, a midday prayer to be repeated throughout the year, and prayers for special occasions. In addition, there are morning prayers for Holy Week.

Common Prayer also includes a unique songbook composed of music and classic lyrics to more than 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.

    " I call it "Liturgy for Dummies" and it's a perfect introduction to the traditions of the church for a dummy like myself. I am enjoying having a new morning rhythm with this book. "

    " I am enjoying this book. It is an excellent resource for prayer -- both personal and corporate. It's developed for use within the New Monastic Communities. I'll give a fuller review later. "

    " Nice format with beautiful meditations on living in community and following the example of "ordinary radicals" like Sojourner Truth, Dorothy Day, Mother Teresa, Oscar Romero and many more. "
