This book offers a model of profound and accessible congregational prayer. At once inspirational and practical, it will empower and equip laypeople and clergy alike to offer heartfelt, informed, and appropriate prayers on behalf of the people of God.

Shaping the Prayers of the People begins by considering what public prayer is and offering practical guidelines for avoiding common pitfalls. It explores prayer as an integral part of worship and discusses the language we need (and don't need) to address God. Significantly, the book also provides an array of example prayers along with commentary.

United Methodist Doctrine Book Description :

Throughout this book, Scott J. Jones insists that for United Methodists the ultimate goal of doctrine is holiness. Importantly, he clarifies the nature and the specific claims of "official" United Methodist doctrine in a way that moves beyond the current tendency to assume the only alternatives are a rigid dogmatism or an unfettered theological pluralism. In classic Wesleyan form, Jones' driving concern is with recovering the vital role of forming believers in the "mind of Christ, " so that they might live more faithfully in their many settings in our world.

Wesley s Forms of Prayer 1733 Book Description :

This 1733 publication, John Wesley's first, arose out of his own devotional life. Originally, it was a collection of prayers compiled for his pupils and colleagues at Oxford. The content was drawn from a popular Anglican devotional manual first published twelve years earlier (1721), The True Church of England Man's Companion in the Closet; or, A Complete Manual of Private Devotion.The book, compiled by Nathaniel Spinckes, included prayers for morning and evening every day of the week, beginning with Sunday. Wesley not only revised the prayer which he reprinted from Spinckes, but assigned them to different days and times. He used other sources in addition to Spinckes, and may have added original prayers of his own.The preface is clearly Wesley's own, which he revised after sharing a draft with his father. Wesley also added a list of "particular questions" for self-examination before evening prayer each day and a briefer series of "general questions" for use every morning prefixed to the prayers for Monday. Here Wesley was following a practice of Western spiritual advisers from Robert Nelson and others in the 17th century back to Ignatius of Loyola in the 16th century.When Wesley revised the book for its fifth edition in 1740, he omitted the questions for self-examination and made the volume more suitable for general use by substituting "family" for "college" in several places. The elimination of the questions may have been in response to brother Samuel Wesley's criticism that the emphasis on self-examination was "mystic nonsense." Editions after 1755, including that in Wesley's collected works, restored the questions. Along the way, hymns were also added making later editions a popular book of worship for Methodist families and societies.

A Brief History of Christian Worship Book Description :

Most histories of Christian worship are written as if nothing significant in liturgical history ever happened in North America, as if cultural diversities were insignificant in the development of worship, and as if most of what mattered were words the priest or minister addressed to God. This book is a revisionist work, attempting to give new direction to liturgical history by treating the experience of worship of the people in the pews as the primary liturgical document. It means liturgical history written facing the other way--that is, looking into the chancel rather than out of it. Relishing the liturgical diversity of recent centuries as firm evidence of Chritianity's ability to adapt to a wide variety of peoples and places, Professor White shows that this tendency has been apparent in Chrisitian worship since its inception in the New Testament churches. Instead of imposing one tradition's criteria on worship, he tries to give a balanced and comprehensive approach to the development of the dozen or more traditions surviving in the modern world.
