Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a note on contributors of the book Prayer in Religion and Spirituality. The book shows that prayer is not merely petition but has additional content and motivation. It presents the types of group prayer (communal liturgies, finding God in secular events, communal examen or discernment) and crowd prayer. The book also demonstrates how prayer changes, transforms and takes on particular characteristics in different times and places, both inside and outside the historical religious traditions. It discusses the ways in which the interviewees' experiences of having heard and felt Jesus and the Holy Spirit can exist in relation to a scientific worldview.

Keywords: crowd prayer; group prayer; historical religious traditions; Holy Spirit; Jesus; spirituality
