This is an edition of fifty pastoral prayers by the great theologian, Karl Barth. The first part of the book is organized around the Christian year, from Advent to Pentecost. The remainder of the book is organized around topics. While one could easily read this book in a single setting, I think it is far more worthwhile to read a prayer or two each day and use it to focus one's own prayers. I don't know enough about Barth's theology to know how much of it shines through, but his prayers certainly feel orthodox and have a view of the church that is both local and world-wide. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0664231535, Paperback)

The first and basic act of theological work is prayer, Karl Barth claimed in his lecture Introduction to Evangelical Theology. But how did this preeminent theologian, widely considered one of the most influential theologians of the modern era, craft and present his own public prayers? This collection for the first time makes Barth s pastoral prayers available to an English-speaking audience, offering a fresh perspective on how the great Swiss theologian understood this central practice of Christian life. The prayers are organized according to seasons of the liturgical year, making them ideal for both group use and individual reflection.
