Andrew Prevot’s recently published book Thinking Prayer: Theology and Spirituality amid the Crises of Modernity received the Best Book in Theology Award from The College Theology Society. The book presents a new, integrated approach to Christian theology and spirituality, focusing on the centrality of prayer to theology in the modern age.

With Thinking Prayer, Andrew Prevot offers such a perspective.
