This collection of ground-breaking essays considers the many dimensions of prayer: how prayer relates us to the divine; prayer's ability to reveal what is essential about our humanity; the power of prayer to transform human desire and action; and the relation of prayer to cognition. It takesup the meaning of prayer from within a uniquely phenomenological point of view, demonstrating that the phenomenology of prayer is as much about the character and boundaries of phenomenological analysis as it is about the heart of religious life.

Editorial Reviews

"The volume is effective, no doubt, because the analysis of prayer flows at least, in part, out of the practices of prayer; in which case what we have here is not just an intracontinental philosophical discussion but, unexpectedly and pleasantly so, an ecumenical forum of prayerful performances."
