Modern Believing

Guest Editorial: Prayer

Modern Believing (2022), 63, (3), 229–233.

Abstract

Prayer is an intensely personal subject - like childbirth - and so can be hard to speak about. For the modernist liberal tradition this can be especially so. It is suggested that a refocusing on personal spiritual experience may be helpful both in decolonising our theology/ies of prayer, and in moving from de-mythologisation to re-mythologisation.
