Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals
With an ear to the particulars of how various liturgical traditions pray, and using an advisory team of liturgical experts, Shane Claiborne, Jonathon Wilson-Hartgrove and Enuma Okoro have created Common Prayer for Ordinary Radicals. This universal prayer book allows readers to greet each day together, remembering significant dates and Christian heroes in church history, as well as important historic dates in the struggle for freedom and justice. There are morning prayers for each day of the year, evening prayers for each of the seven days of the week, a midday prayer to be repeated throughout the year, and prayers for special occasions. In addition there are morning prayers for Holy Week. Common Prayer also includes a unique song book composed of music and classic lyrics to more than 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.
