Under the expert guidance of the late Bishop George Appleton a selection of prayers has been made spanning many centuries. It includes Christian prayers from the Bible and from the saints and mystics of the past, as well as prayers from Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, Iranian, Shinto, Classical Greek and Latin, native American, and Bahá'í religions, and also contemporary prayers from different parts of the world. The cooperation of many advisers has ensured that the choice of prayers is ecumenical in the widest sense of the word.

The prayers are arranged under headings such as "Prayers from the Scriptures", "Prayers of Christians, personal and occasional", "Prayers of the Church", and "Prayers from other traditions of faith", but there is also a subject index to guide the user to prayers for particular occasions, and an index of authors and sources. The book may thus be used for browsing or for more structured prayer, for private meditation or for public worship.

Review:

'A greatly welcomed book of gloriously rich spirituality.'
Avril Bottoms, Methodist Recorder

'Any Oxford Book is in itself a recommendation, and this one is no exception. This is a book to dip into and enjoy.'
Dominic Baldwin, Southern Cross

'this collection of prayers has become a classic, to be found on the shelves of almost every member of the clergy ... many are deeply personal and beautifully suited to those moments when we simply need help in expressing the thoughts of our hearts'
Andrew Cain, The Door
