A humorist with an ear for social commentary uses the language of prayer to highlight the absurdity of the modern world. What lingers about the book, however, isn t the comedy. Through the course of the prayers, a character begins to develop that turns out to be much more than just witty. By smashing together the language of prayer and observational humor, Whitten is able to reveal the cracks and contradictions in modern life that tickle us as much as they trouble us. To his credit, the book spends as much time scanning the zeitgeist as delivering punch lines. --Kirkus Reviews
