Description

Now in paperback for the first time, Jane Redmont's When in Doubt, Sing is a "revitalizing" (National Catholic Reporter), "wide-ranging and substantive" (Spirituality & Practice), and "open-minded, generous-hearted" (Library Journal) introduction to prayer and the life of prayer from a Christian theologian whose warm, thoughtful, inviting voice will endear her to a diverse audience of believers and spiritual seekers. First published in 1999, and now reissued with a new preface, this book is both a rich, practical compendium of prayer types (such as centering prayer, praying with icons, and lectio divina) and a warmly personal guide to enlivening your spiritual life.

Praise

"A wonderful resource."

"A wonderful resource for carving out time for prayer and solitude."

Therese J. Borchard, on beliefnet.com

"A revitalizing book."

"One cannot read this book and remain the same. It is a book that stretches traditional thinking about God without discarding tradition, distilling what is salient while gently nudging fresh ideas our way.... When in Doubt, Sing is a revitalizing book, meant to be pondered slowly."

National Catholic Reporter

"Intelligent and compassionate."

"An intelligent and compassionate guide to prayer and daily practice. [Redmont’s] tone, her own story, and her good writing infuse the book with a trustworthy authenticity. This is a woman who knows about prayer, in all its patterns, depths, and turns."

Nora Gallagher, Author of Things Seen and Unseen

"Wide-ranging and substantive."

"The author of Generous Lives: American Catholic Women Today is a great believer in inter-religious dialogue and eclectic spiritual practices. This gift shines through the diverse prayers, ancient and modern, Christian and non-Christian at the end of each chapter. . . . The author reveals her hospitality to all types of readers with chapters on praying with and for children; using spiritual directors, retreats, and other resources; and linking spirituality and social justice. When in Doubt, Sing is a wide-ranging and substantive source book on the many devotional options in our time."
