The Book of Uncommon Prayer
Woven together are natural and biblical imagery and the traditions of liturgical prayer, to resource us in relating to creation, God and one another in deep, dynamic and relevant ways.
"Annie has written as if I am reading the deepest words of my heart. The beauty and simplicity of language makes these prayers wholly accessible for so many people. Her helpful guidance on how and where these prayers might be used is generous and honest."
Revd Diana Dingles Greenfield, Avalon Pioneer Minister
"This is a profound and rich collection that can be used by Christians and seekers alike, helping us express some of our deepest emotions around loss, death, our bodies, the earth, hope, remorse and hardship, as well as prayers and rituals to help us to celebrate the challenge and joy of being alive by marking the moments that matter."
Madeleine Parkes, Spiritual Care Practitioner, Birmingham and Solihull mental health NHS foundation trust
"There are few books that have excited me as much as this one for the potential it contains to be a major force in the renewing of our approach to prayer. Far more than a book of alternative liturgies, Annie goes to great lengths to explain, educate and challenge her readers. Drawn into its creative overflowing of ideas, I find myself imagining all kinds of ways in which the texts could be used. This is a goldmine of resources!"
Revd Paul Cudby, Bishop's Advisor for New Religious Movements, Forest Church leader and parish priest
