Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent book for learning about how to pray!  May 10, 2006
Old's book is great for pastors as well as lay persons. It shows great examples of prayers that are composed through the study of the scriptures. It helps equip the reader to pray more authentically and to be aware of theology of praying. It can be a great text to use in a class to teach about how to pray publicly and especially using corporate prayers in worship.
Great, Practical Resource  Mar 4, 2006
I had the privilege of taking a doctoral seminar at Erskine Seminary under Dr. Old and became familiar with his work. His book on Leading in Prayer is not only valuable in helping construct prayers for worship, but they are wonderful helps in my daily devotions. You will do well to purchase and use this book by this great man of prayer who is an authority on public worship.
Indispensible  Sep 19, 2005
From the cover photo of Calvin's St. Peter's, Geneva to the order for prayer on the last (370th) page, this is pure liturgical gold.

Hughes O. Old is THE leading liturgist and authority on historical worship in the English-speaking Reformed world. The essays on prayer in worship, the sample prayers, the liturgies -- it is all priceless. This is a MUST HAVE for any pastor.

The weaknesses of the book are minor.
1. No index, though the prayers are arranged well topically.
2. The binding by Eerdmans is slightly below their usually high standards. One copy (I have bought three) had some pages fall out within a few uses. It is glued (not sown) softcover with large 8.5 x 11 pages, so its not built for constant use. Given that this is a reference book, this can be a problem.

Some other good resources for sample prayers I have used recently: Stanley Hauerwas, Prayers Plainly Spoken (quirky, but often beautiful); The Worship Sourcebook (2005 by CRC).
