Item description for An African Prayer Book by Desmond Tutu...

Combines spiritual guidance with the prayers of religious figures throughout history, including Jesus, Solomon, a Bushman, the Egyptian Copts, Augustine, Clement of Alexandria, and the former Archbishop of South Africa himself. Reprint.

Publishers Description
Prayer, our conversation with God, needs no set formulas or flowery phrases. It often needs no words at all. But for most believers, the words of others can be a wonderful aid to devotion, especially when these words come from faithful fellow pilgrims.
"An African Prayer Book" is just such an aid, for in this collection all the spiritual riches of the vast and varied continent of Africa are bravely set forth. Here we overhear the simple prayer of the penniless Bushman, the words of some of the greatest Church fathers (Augustine and Athanasius), petitioning and jubilant voices from South Africa's struggle for freedom, and even prayers from the Africa diasporas of North America and the Caribbean. Here are Jesus's own encounters with Africa, which provided him refuge at the beginning of his life (from the murderous King Herod) and aid at its end (in the person of Simon of Cyrene, who helped Jesus carry his cross). From thunderous multi-invocation litanies to quiet meditations, here are prayers every heart can speak with strength and confidence.

Nurture for your soul  Dec 16, 2007
These prayers will feed and nurture your soul and at an unusual (and sometimes uncomfortable) depth. Purchase this book for yourself or for someone else whom you love. It is the gift of spirit and spirit-care. Be prepared to be moved, and moved deeply.

Luminous - a wonderful collection of prayers and devotions  Jun 17, 2000
In "The African Prayer Book," Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town has assembled a series of prayers on such topics as adoration, contrition, thanksgiving, supplication and daily life; ranging from authors who wrote their prayers in antiquity, and those living in modern times. Although the primary focus is Christian, prayers from other faith traditions are included.

This book is exquisite, to see and touch as well as to read, and the prayers are beautiful. Archbishop Tutu prefaces each chapter with a meditation on the topic: those alone are well worth owning the book. A wonderful collection.

The African Prayer Book  Jan 12, 2000
This book is just beautiful. It is a wonderful collection of prayers and poetry. The very first one entitled An African Canticle is worth the price alone.
