Common Prayer Pocket Edition helps today's diverse church pray together across traditions and denominations. With an ear to the particulars of various liturgical prayer traditions, and using an advisory team of liturgy experts, the authors have created a tapestry of prayer that celebrates the best of each tradition.This convenient and portable book also includes a unique songbook composed of music and classic lyrics to over 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 unfamiliar with liturgy and deepen the prayer life of those already familiar with liturgical prayer. Ultimately, Common Prayer Pocket Edition 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. Churches and individuals who desire a deeper prayer life---and those familiar with Shane Claiborne and New Monasticism---will enjoy the tools offered in this book as a fresh take on liturgy.
