"Offers great wisdom about the way religious rituals can help people make sense of their lives…. This book is for all Jews and Christians who hope for religious ritual that speaks to deep human hungers and helps people discover God's presence in their daily experience."
—Rev. Ruth Duck, associate professor of worship art, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
"Lawrence Hoffman shows us how, by understanding the dynamic between a person and God and among people gathered for prayer, the length of our communal reach can exceed the sum of our individual efforts. In doing so, he helps us discover our collective heart."
—Rabbi Jack Moline, Agudas Achim Congregation, Alexandria, Virginia
"An indispensable resource as we envision effective modes of prayer for the 21stcentury synagogue."
—Dr. Ron Wolfson, codeveloper, Synagogue 3000; author, The Art of Jewish Living series (Jewish Lights Publishing)
"A captivating work solidly grounded and eminently readable in which Rabbi Hoffman draws on a variety of cultural and religious analogues to help us understand the renewed liturgy and what makes it work. Highly recommended for liturgical practitioners wishing to reflect more deeply on the art of public prayer."
—Father Gil Ostdiek, OFM, past president, North American Academy of Liturgy
