The communion of saints gathers a rich and diverse selection of prayers from famous people of all walks of life from the past two thousand years. Here are the prayers of such individuals as John Donne, Soren Kierkegaard, Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, Ludwig van Beethoven, Michelangelo, Augustine, Martin Luther King Jr., C. S. Lewis, Anne Bradstreet, Blaise Pascal, Francis of Assisi, and many more. Diverse in intention, emphasis, style, and feeling, these prayers are grouped according to six practical classifications: "Prayers of Gratitude and Dedication," "Prayers of Confession and Penitence," "Prayers of Petition," "Prayers of Intercession," "Prayers Marking Times," and "Prayers for the Christian Year." Much more than a work of historical interest, this anthology makes an excellent tool for personal devotions, inspiring readers to deepen their own prayer lives.
New Oxford Review
"A good nightstand prayer book that puts the reader in fine company."
Lutheran Partners
"These prayers are wonderfully useful. You'll use this one for decades!"
Christian Ministry
"Because of its ecumenical breadth, Protestants, Orthodox, and Roman Catholics will find this book a rich resource for personal devotional life."
The Presbyterian Outlook
"One of the most outstanding new books of prayers. . . If one were going to buy only one book on prayer this year, this is the one to buy."
