Christian prayer rests on two foundations which give it its specific character: belief in the transcendent and personal nature of the God who is revealed in the Bible, and acceptance of the intimate relation of God and man made possible by the atoning work of the Incarnate Christ The book is for people who want to follow a life of Christian prayer. It includes prayers that readers will want to remember and make their own and others that will immediately inspire prayerful thoughts. Prayer is a two-way process, which relies in faith on God's willingness to bring the person praying into contact with him. This can start with spoken prayer and go much further. The prayers included have great literary merit and reflect the rich inheritance of the English-speaking Christian world, which has made its own the finest expressions of worship through the centuries. Here an enticing mixture of the familiar and the unknown and the book is ideal for private reading and devotion or for use in school, public assembly or church.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This may be the classical collection of prayers and prayerful poetry that you are looking for, or are missing from your own bookshelf. For reference or reflection, Howse has provided in this attractive anthology a good selection of our most loved prayers and prayerful quotations" - Franciscan
"Howse, Assistant Editor of the Daily Telegraph, has a keen eye for quality: he has already authored Best Sermons Ever and Best Spiritual Reading Ever. This collection of prayers includes not only prayers in the usual sense but also hymns, poems, portions of liturgy, and private devotions-and there is not a dud in the bunch." - Library Journal
