An attractive reissue of the late Bishop George Appleton's celebrated selection of over 1,100 prayers from many centuries and many traditions, including Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, Iranian, Shinto, Classical Greek and Latin, native American, and Baha'i. The wide-rangingcontents ofThe Oxford Book of Prayer reflect the cooperation of the many advisers who have ensured that the choice of prayers is ecumenical in the widest sense of the word. The prayers are arranged under headings such as 'Prayers from the Scriptures', 'Prayers of Christians, personal and occasional', 'Prayers of the Church', and 'Prayers from other traditions of faith', but there is also a subject index to guide the user to prayers for particular occasions, and anindex of authors and sources. The book may thus be used for browsing or for more structured prayer, for private meditation or for public worship.
The Late George Appleton was a Bishop. He had a wide and varied ministry in the Anglican Church and served for a short time as Archdeacon of London and Canon of St Paul's Cathedral. He was elected Archbishop of Perth, Western Australia in 1963, and Archbishop in Jerusalem 1969-74.

Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "this collection of prayers has become a classic, to be found on the shelves of almost every member of the clergy ... many are deeply personal and beautifully suited to those moments when we simply need help in expressing the thoughts of our hearts" --The Door
