James Moore provides an account of prayer in America from the period of early settlement to the present and discusses prayers from a variety of religious groups, including Catholic, Jews, and Native Americans. Moore examines prayers used both in public settings and those used by individuals for personal reasons. Lee Leoncavallo narrates the work in a gentle, avuncular manner. Moore treats the prayers respectfully, whatever their tradition, and, with his serious and thoughtful delivery, Leoncavallo sounds like a kindly older clergyman. While the reading is not particularly exciting, that may be due to the text itself rather than Leoncavallo's abilities. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
