Reviews - What do customers think about When in Doubt, Sing: Prayer in Daily Life?
A fine choice for any who want to value prayer as something more Mar 14, 2009
Prayer is so much more than a conversation with God. "When in Doubt, Sing: Prayer in Daily Life" is a guide for further embracing prayer in one's daily life, instead of the mere lip service so many Christians fall into. Promoting that individuality has a strong place and prayer, and that prayer can help one's own identity in finding oneself and bringing them closer to God, Redmont also includes passages for Non-Christian prayer, making "When in Doubt, Sing" a fine choice for any who want to value prayer as something more.
Pray hard; life is short Aug 31, 2000
I recommend this book as readable and helpful for the beginner and the wellversed. It has breadth in bringing incontributions from many beliefs.There are anecdotes and experiencesfrom people's actual lives. It is a good compendium of historical examples and imaginative, unique examples. It can help many in "lifting their minds and hearts to God."
At last! A book for those who live in the world. Dec 10, 1999
A book on prayer for those who live and work in the real world. Here are stories about prayer that reflect life as I must live it! Prayer when I'm angry. Prayer when I can not pray. Prayer when everything has gone to hell. Prayer from all views of life and God.
This is the best book on prayer I have ever seen. If you purchase only one book on prayer in thr next year, this should be it!
At last! A book on prayer for out loud types! Dec 10, 1999
Hurray! My home library is full of books on spiritual practice, all read and mostly gathering dust. All that advice to "go off and be quiet" just does not speak to my extraverted and very public self. Jane Redmont's book is the first I've seen that embraces the wildly varied personalities of those who dare to pray. She not only acknowledges the variety, but invites the reader into new spaces where God may be found. I've bought and given away half a dozen copies of this book, and I'm waiting for the paperback version so I can afford to pass more around! What a treasure. It doesn't sit on my shelf. It gets USED.
A profound, creative, comprehensive, consoling book!!! May 30, 1999
I am very impressed and moved by this book. It is not just another one of those books on spirituality that leaves you hungry the next day. It's a book you'll want to keep for a lifetime, I think.It is obviously the result of lived experience," and hence very fresh and new sounding,although it harks back to ancient themes that have haunted the daily lives of people since the brginning. A Ph.D. candidate in theology, Redmont wears her scholarly learning lightly and subtly, but it is there, making this a book where the author has not tried to "re-invent" in some New Age way all of spirituality. A very compassionate tome too! It will delight you!
