Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This is a startling book of prayers. Many are related to particular days of the church calendar and some are appropriate for "every day" use. What pulls them together is an openness and authenticity seldom found among Christians, much less in their books. Brueggemann is honest about our struggles to trust and follow God as well as our misgivings when it seems God ignores us or asks too much. But he also exults in the God of the universe who nurtures us with grace and humor. The prayers are appropriate for private mediations, in small group devotions or as discussion starters with a larger group.
