About the Author:

Jann Aldredge-Clanton, PhD, is an oncology chaplain at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, and Adjunct Professor of Pastoral Theology at Perkins School of Theology. She is the author of numerous books, including Inclusive Hymns for Liberating Christians (2006); Praying with Christ-Sophia: Services for Healing and Renewal (2007); and God: A Word for Girls and Boys (2007).

Review:

"Dr. Jann Aldredge-Clanton's inclusive and feminist liturgies, prayers, hymns, and theo/aology bring nothing but liberation and love to the lives of the individuals and faith communities that use them. I am grateful for Jann's wisdom and liturgical creativity that help the divine feminine arise not only in our rituals but in our acts of justice and spiritual journey. Not a Sunday goes by at Ebenezer/herchurch Lutheran without a hymn or prayer or responsive reading penned by Jann. Seeking wisdom? Begin with this book!"
--Stacy Boorn
Pastor, herchurch Lutheran, San Francisco

"This outstanding book of prayers achieves the twin aims of all classic prayer books. It models the best of contemporary public prayers, which are diverse and inclusive. It invites the reader to meditation upon the God to whom the prayers are addressed. Readers who seek model prayers for public occasions or desire stimulus to devotion will be richly rewarded."
--Steven S. Ivy
Senior Vice President
Values, Ethics, Social Responsibility, and Pastoral Services
Clarian Health

"Once again Jann Aldredge-Clanton has blessed us with a fine collection of worship resources, drawing on the rich and deep Wisdom traditions and her own extensive pastoral experience. Prayers, litanies, and readings abound with insight and wisdom for virtually any occasion one might imagine, making this book both immensely practical and deeply inspiring."
--Marjorie Procter-Smith
LeVan Professor of Christian Worship
Perkins School of Theology

"Jann Aldredge-Clanton once again inspires us in our everyday work. The blessings and prayers she offers assist those of us in public ministry to provide the breadth and depth of Wisdom in the wider world. I heartily recommend these beautiful offerings."
--Karrie Oertli
ACPE Supervisor, Director Department of Pastoral Care
Integris Baptist Medical Center, Oklahoma City, OK

"For the preacher or worship leader seeking a fresh voice, unique twists in the language of liturgy, and many ways to articulate God's expansive essence, this book is a gift of spirit and intellect. Dr. Aldredge-Clanton artfully combines her years of ministry experience with her command and love of language to provide a timely resource for chaplain and pastor alike to breathe in Wisdom's counsel and then offer others words of grace and guidance."
--Nancy Ellett Allison
Pastor, Holy Covenant United Church of Christ, Charlotte, NC --Wipf and Stock Publishers
