An anthology of Christian prayers that has been collected from every corner of the globe. The vivid imagery and use of language may differ from country to country, but the same universal themes of love, forgiveness and hope run through them all. The prayers come from the Philippines, Kenya, India, Mexico as well as from Europe and the USA.

Jeremy Brooks grew up in Burundi, central Africa, where he worked as a solicitor for a number of years before returning to Britain to become a priest in the Church of England. He uses prayer and storytelling in his work with children in church and in school. His previous book for Frances Lincoln was A WORLD OF PRAYERS.

Elena Gomez was born in Spain and now lives and works in France.

4 stars. A perfect multicultural collection of prayers.

A beautifully presented book, which I'm sure will find its place on the shelves of RE resource cupboards and school libraries across the country. The prayers are often spiritual and meaningful and the illustration intriguingly multilayered.
