College Theology Society awards THINKING PRAYER Best Book in Theology

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. At a time when many thinkers are tempted to dismiss prayer as an irrational, irresponsible, or ineffective religious practice disconnected from the rigors of academic work and activist political struggle, we need an alternative perspective that questions these assumptions and reassesses prayer’s positive potential. With Thinking Prayer, Andrew Prevot offers such a perspective.

Syndicate Theology, the online forum for scholars to address and engage open questions in contemporary theology and ethics, has scheduled a forthcoming symposium on Thinking Prayer including panelists Ludger Viefhues-Bailey, Yves De Maeseneer, Karl Hefty, Andrea White, and Gillian Breckenridge.

Andrew Prevot is assistant professor of theology at Boston College.
