  • In Pray Like This, Rodney Werline offers a clear pathway into understanding and using biblical prayers. Far from being timeless spiritual gems, Werline shows that each prayer is tied to its own unique world of social structures, ideas about God, and assumptions about the way the world works - as are our own prayers. Because biblical prayers are not immediately transferable to our contemporary world, Werline leads the reader into a lively discussion with these prayers that is part personal spiritual memoir and part scholarly endeavor. As he states in the introduction, "The journey through this book on prayer is also a journey through the world in which I live as both scholar and Christian. This book reveals my own struggle to bring these worlds together and hold them together, and displays how my mind and soul encounter biblical texts.... On this journey and in this world, I carry on a constant lively conversation with the biblical text. This book on prayer springs from those conversations."
