Creative, inspiring aids to prayer in corporate worship from one of today's best known preachers and teachers.

"John Killinger has been helping us to worship the true, living, and interesting God for a long time. John loves words, particularly words spoken to God by those who have heard God speak. This is a wonderful collection of prayers." --William H. Willimon, Dean of the Chapel and Professor of Christian Ministry, Duke University Chapel, Durham, North Carolina

"Lost in Wonder, Love, and Praise is a book of worship resources and prayers that is practical in nature and poetic in quality. An artist with words, Dr. Killinger takes our common experiences and illuminates them with deep spiritual insight." --Dr. Walter J. Vernon, Consulting Minister, First Congregational Church, Los Angeles, California

"In the tradition of Buttrick, Fosdick, Baillie, and Samuel Miller, a great preacher has shared with the church a timely and unique collection of his prayers and other aids to public and private worship. John Killinger is a wordsmith who weaves together images that lead us to the very heart of God. Pastors will find their own prayer lives deepened by this volume and congregations will discover language that bridges classical and contemporary liturgy. One cannot read Killinger's words and not be 'Lost in Wonder, Love, and Praise.' " --William B. Oden, Resident Bishop, Dallas Area, The United Methodist Church
