Becoming the Answer to Our Prayers: Prayer for Ordinary Radicals with Shane Claiborne


“Activists Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove show how prayer and action must go together. Their exposition of key Bible passages provides concrete examples of how a life of prayer fuels social engagement and the work of justice. Phrases like ‘give us this day our daily bread” and “forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors’ take on new meaning when applied to feeding the hungry or advocating for international debt relief. “This book is a small invocation which, once prayed, calls for those who thought they knew the far country to see it for the first time. The far country is not so far as we supposed: it lies vivid and visible betwen our ‘our Fathers’ and our ‘thy will be dones.’”

—Calvin Miller, Beeson Divinity School, author of The Singer and The Path of Celtic Prayer

“This book compels us passionately to ask, in the power of the Holy Spirit, ‘How am I “putting legs on my prayers”?’ This is a tested book and a necessary one!”

—Marva J. Dawn, teaching fellow in Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, and author of Unfettered Hope, Joy in Divine Wisdom and My Soul Waits
