Item description for Christian Prayer through the Centuries by Joseph a. Jungmann, Christopher Irvine & John Coyne...
Overview This is a new and revised edition of this classic work. There is a basic sameness in the way that Christians, over the last two thousand years, have raised their hearts and minds to God. And yet there are dissimilarities, too. The manners and methods of prayer have changed in different eras because people have changed, their attitudes and sensibilities have changed, their language, social fabric, and self-understanding have changed. In this concise, fascinating book, Joseph Jungmann reviews the way that Christian habits of prayer have evolved from apostolic times to the post-Tridentine era. It is a narrative that links Christian faith and Christian culture in a rich and meaningful way.
Publishers Description Drawing on his years of experience of Christian community life with and for people with disabilities, the author explores the implications of the relationship of man and woman from a Christian and community standpoint.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Prayer through the Centuries?
History of liturgical prayer Sep 11, 2009
Mainly this book is about vocal or liturgical prayer, how the forms developed, and how different phases of Christian history have influenced prayer. I'd describe it as a "masterful" book. The author has an astonishingly wide knowledge of the subject matter, and yet he expresses himself succinctly, observing the broad themes while at the same time citing specific and detailed examples. It was just the right length for me, too.
