About "Common Prayer"
Common Prayer helps today's diverse church pray together across traditions and denominations. With an ear to the particulars of how various liturgical traditions pray, and using an advisory team of liturgy experts, the authors have created a tapestry of prayer that celebrates the best of each tradition. The book also includes a unique songbook composed of music and classic lyrics to over 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. Churches and individuals who desire a deeper prayer life and those familiar with Shane Claiborne and New Monasticism will enjoy the tools offered in this book as a fresh take on liturgy.

This book of Common Prayer is a beautiful and thoughtful book of prayers, songs, and reflections. It is designed to be prayed in community with others and offers "call response" type prayers, Psalms and songs from Ancient forefathers, to modern day monastics. With a strong emphasis on monastic life, peacemaking and justice (particularly in American contexts), it not only provides you with a scaffold for daily prayer and scripture, but also a way into the Ancient Monastic traditions of work and prayer, using a mix of modern and ancient stories and reflections. With prayers for the morning, midday, and evening each day, as well as prayer for just about every occasion one would encounter, this book will be a great resource to any community, family or individual looking to build their rhythm of life around prayer, community, mercy and justice.
