I'm kind of disappointed in this book. I absolutely loved Pagitt's book "Reimagining Spiritual Formation" (since retitled to "Church Reimagined"), and also liked Preaching Reimagined as our church does a similar sermon//discussion format.

In this book, Doug Pagitt and Kathryn Prill describe 30 physical postures that can enhance and focus our prayers to Jesus. Each chapter is headed by a prayer focus (for example, "A Prayer for Willingness"), a brief introduction, a line drawing of the prayer posture, a poem and a longer description of the posture. An appendix gives Scriptural references for the prayer topic.

But this book was just a bit too... lightweight, simplistic. It was often hard for me to see the meaning for a particular body pose (or more accurately, how it 'meant' the prayer topic.

I love the idea of physically representing our prayer, but I'm not crazy about the implementation of this particular book. ( )
