A Book of Uncommon Prayer

Theo Dorgan

A Book of Uncommon Prayer is a collection of spiritual and devotional texts, drawn from both inside and outside the limits of the world's religious traditions. It is organized with attention to the occasions of prayer, prayerful thought, and meditation. In an age marked at once by religious violence and the falling away of orthodox religious observance in the West, here is a book that recognizes – and demonstrates – the universality of prayer.

Theo Dorgan is a poet, broadcaster, and author, most recently of Sailing for Home: A Voyage from Antigua to Kinsale.
