    circa 1965, I categorize this book sort of as Episcopal Beat Poetry. I haven't followed Boyd in any of his other books so I wouldn't consider myself a follower or even a fan, I haven't scrutinized any of his theological stances or political positions- but I do enjoy this book.It's refreshing in it's raw openness and honesty about doubts and feelings and modern social concerns, from race, gender and poverty, to movies, academia, and stress. These prayers are touching and remind the reader that God is interested in our mundane and our intimate, our profound and our profane. Jesus is not just divine, but also human, He's experienced our struggles and understands us.Where are books like this today? Why hasn't some pastor or minister or poet taken to writing a book of personal prayers in common language? Why not?

    I came across the Revd Malcolm Boyd when I read a small book of poetry and prose on gay couples.Malcolm Boyd died earlier this year at the magnificent age of 91. He was an Episcopalian/Anglican priest with a long history of human rights and civil rights advocacy stretching back to the sixties when he participated in the civil rights movements and freedom rides.He came out in 1977 and became a spokesman for gay rights risking his position and career. He was ordained in 1954 and wrote many books. He also knew how to reach people. In the 1960's he became known as 'the Espresso Priest' for his religiously themed poetry reading sessions at a night club in San Francisco.I am a romantic and it was his story about his partner that attracted me to this man. He met his partner, Mark Thompson, in the 1980's and they remained together until he died.This book was first published in 1965 the year of my birth. It was considered ground breaking at the time because it was different to the formal prayers said in church. These prayers broke boundaries because they tackled gritty problems head on and are raw and urgent. These days this kind of prayer probably wouldn't raise any eyebrows (not in my church) because this kind of prayer is encouraged and appreciated but back in the sixties it was considered radical and gritty.And these prayers are radical and gritty still, some of them written in the midst of the fire of the civil rights movement with honesty and emotion. When he came out Malcolm Boyd had difficulty finding work at a church. He called it his 'wilderness time' but he didn't give up and spent his life teaching and preaching and ministering to all. In 1984, he helped organise one of the first Christian masses for people with AIDS.Desmond Tutu said that Boyd's genius was to illustrate the presence of God 'even for those who say they do not believe in God.'And I have to say his life intrigues me because he was so radical and courageous and compassionate, and he also wrote about thirty books.So I read this book of prayers as a way of beginning my study of this man's life. I believe there is much that I will learn from his life and perhaps things I can pass on to others as I continue to minister to people on the margins, but perhaps as well truths and lessons for people who aren't marginalised.This volume of prayer doesn't shock me the way it would have done people in 1965, but it encourages me to pray and to pray any where, any how and from who I really am. This book reminds me to pray.So for me it is inspirational. Any life that is lived with such authenticity and courage is a life worth studying and I intend to do so.Starting as I mean to go on!!

    When I first read this book I fell in love, I had already fallen in love with Malcolm Boyd because of the cover.The prayers are so simple but somehow so poignant. I really like the simplicity of what he has to say.

    I loved this book. The prayers are raw and honest. I've written a full review here:

    Sometimes a little too blasphemous for my traditional Catholic mindset, but nevertheless a useful and casual set of prayers, aimed at the confused modern man.

    I find this book a little self-centered but then I believe that he points that out in the title. So since I have never been one for pre-scripted prayers I don't know that I would reference this book again. However, it is a glimpse into honest feelings and I believe that God once us to admit our feelings to him and yes I am a strong believer in Jesus Christ is God so I don't have a problem with that. I did however find this book a little and interesting though I tried to stick with it. Everyone has a story and I am glad that he wrote his story.

    These were some of the most authentic prayers that I have ever read. I found Boyd's willingness to go to God completely as himself even when he was feeling irreverent so encouraging for my own relationship with God. It felt validating to see someone else express the idea that our prayers need not be perfect Christian pictures of piety in order to arouse the interest of God. The confirmation that God can run with us even in our messy not-so-Christian feelings and ways of being was my biggest takeaway from this book. My only major issue with this book was the inclusion of an Afterword which seemed pointless after a collection of prayers that really spoke for themselves.

    This book had a powerful influence on me when it was given to me, at 15 y/o, by the family I babysat for. Thanks to Matt and Sue for this powerful book on being a radical Christian, and all the other books and music you used to be of help to me in surviving my teen years. Though I am not a Christian the way most of this country views what it is to be a "Christian". I still go to it, in times I need that push to keep going, as well as when I am struggling with my life's problems.

    Wise WordsI love this author. The Church and society tried to stop him from being Malcolm Boyd. He held on tight to Christ and survived all attempts to shut him up. Yes, Jesus ran with him while others ran against him.

    I've picked this up and put it down several times now, so into the donation pile it goes.Malcolm Boyd would have made a good blogger, and probably would have been great at Twitter. Alas, he was born 70 years too early.

    I feel late to this party, but I am so happy I've arrived. This is truly life-changing. I really want to hear the Charlie Byrd record that goes with it!
