Stephen Cherry’s latest book is a sequence of beautifully crafted prayer-meditations, providing simple yet profound spiritual nourishment for the Lenten season. Barefoot Prayers gives an engaging introduction to the different ways that prayer can work in the lives of the busiest of Christians.
Like the Psalms in honesty and depth, these are poems that can help us pray, and prayers that can awaken us to the poetry in everyday life.
—Dame Laurentia Johns, Benedictine nun, Stanbrook Abbey
The title of this book says it well. Step into the Lenten season with shoes off, feeling the ground of life with senses fully alert to daily encounters in vulnerable ways. Stephen Cherry is a wise and gracious spiritual guide whose prayers magnificently touch the wide range of human experience.
—Sheryl Shenk, spiritual director and founder, Blue Ridge Ministries, Harrisonburg, VA
These quiet, free-form poetic meditations lead readers to find ways to pray about everything, from the busyness of an ordinary day to the great mysteries of Good Friday and Easter.
—Holly Ordway, professor of English, Houston Baptist University
These are prayers with the all-too-rare quality of being freshly minted and imagined in a different register. They’re evocative, playful, and searching, and they demand a return visit.
—John Pritchard, bishop of Oxford
