This is one of those books that really benefit from an audio presentation. James P. Moore, Jr.'s, explanation of prayer's importance in American history is often persuasive, but it is such a rich topic that it's easy to imagine reading only a bit of it at a time. Moore's own delivery is moderately enlivening, but what ensures that this book touches listeners is the inclusion of prayers from many traditions. These are read, whispered, and chanted by an array of voices, all of whom treat the prayers reverently. The voices make listening a spiritual act, rather than just an intellectual one.
