The book launch event, which takes place on Wednesday, 10 March, will also feature an opening reflection on poverty and justice by Dr Rowan Williams, Christian Aid’s chair and the former Archbishop of Canterbury.
Commemorating 75 years of Christian Aid, the new publication is a prayer book like no other. Full of defiance and determination, it is an invitation to join Christian Aid and followers of Jesus around the world in a united chorus of Rage and Hope.
Bringing together voices from different contexts and cultures around the world, this is a collection of prayers of lament for the injustices of the world, and prayers of hope for the world we want to see. With a foreword from Walter Brueggemann, one of the world’s leading theologians, it also features contributions from writer Rhidian Brook, Professor Robert Beckford, John Bell, Bishop Rachel Treweek and Bishop Paul Butler.
The world is broken, full of injustice and inequality, but despite everything, we hope. You can pre-order your copy here.
