Editorial Reviews

Review

Boyd’s prayers are in a conversational tone, centered upon Jesus Christ as a compassionate Savior to whom one can pray about anything, lofty or trivial. A true devotional classic, highly recommended for all Christians. (The Bookwatch)

At once informal and literate, these prayers are also deeply personal. . . . Their eloquence comes from the personal struggle they contain—a struggle to believe, to keep going, a spiritual contest that is agonized, courageous and not always won. . . . A very moving book. (Eliot Fremont-Smith The New York Times)

Malcolm Boyd has written a book which captures the spirit of our age and speaks to our times. (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

Boyd is a prophet for our times. All that is required of the reader is the ability to read—and the rudiments of a conscience. (The Christian Century)

The prayers are very personal, very modern, sometimes poetic. They talk about sex and the bomb and civil rights and the movies and all the things that bug Malcolm Boyd and the alienated generation that has adopted him as its spokesman. (Review Of Higher Education)

Malcolm Boyd really can write a prayer—he is to prayer what Shakespeare is to the sonnet. (Frank Deford)

This is prayer in the raw, with the last varnish gone—human life, in all its warmth and lovelessness, laid bare before God. (Bishop John A. T. Robinson, Author of Honest to God)

About the Author

Malcolm Boyd was ordained as an Episcopal priest in 1955 after a successful career in advertising and television.

Boyd has long served the cause of civil rights, commencing with a Freedom Ride in l96l. He has served parishes and college chaplaincies in Indianapolis, Colorado, Detroit, Washington D.C., and Santa Monica, Calif. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his life-partner of 2l years, author, editor, and therapist Mark Thompson. The author of numerous books, Boyd is now poet/writer-in-residence at the Cathedral Center of St. Paul in the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles.

Wow. I can't believe only one other person has reviewed this. I picked up this book looking for some direction to living out my newfound faith and belief that was most akin to my own inquisitive nature, and was overall impressed with Malcolm Boyd's approach to speaking to the Lord Jesus.

There is a certain poetry and eloquence to much of it that I'm sure was intentional and makes it more accessible ("Save us from ourselves; spare us the evil of our hearts' good intentions, unbrideled and mad..."), but more than just hollow, pretty words, its really the searching, the uncertainty, the humanity in it all that seems most close to how the average Christian prays on their own. I'd reccommend this. It was what I was looking for. Boyd writes at one point "I want to pray in my doing and being, Jesus". These are words I've absorbed into my own daily prayers.

Format: Paperback
Now celebrating its 40th anniversary edition, Are Your Running With Me, Jesus? by ordained Episcopalian priest Malcolm Boyd is a groundbreaking treasury. Daring to break with the formal patterns of the era, Boyd's prayers are in a conversational tone, centered upon Jesus Christ as a compassionate Savior to whom one can pray about anything, lofty or trivial. This new edition of Are You Running With Me, Jesus? has the more outdated linguistic forms updated, and the prayers made obsolete by topicality removed. A true devotional classic, highly recommended for all Christians. "When a mind is closed and communication has ceased, how may a person be reached? If one's heart has never learned to love, or has stopped loving, how may the heart be taught, Jesus?"
