Dr. Lucinda Allen Mosher (Class of 2002) has edited a new book, Prayer: Christian and Muslim Perspectives, along with her colleague David Marshall, published last December by Georgetown University Press.Prayer: Christian and Muslim Perspectives is a collection of essays, scriptural texts, and personal reflections featuring leading scholars analyzing the meaning and function of prayer within their traditions. Drawn from the 2011 Building Bridges seminar in Doha, Qatar, the essays in this volume explore the devotional practices of each tradition and how these practices are taught and learned.
Mosher is the author of seven books, co-editor of three, and contributor to many others, as well as a number of journal articles—the most popular of which is “Walking Deliberately Into Difference” (Anglican Theological Review, Fall 2011). She is guest editor for Teaching Theology and Religion, Volume 16:4—a Special Issue on Multifaith Theological Education.
Mosher enjoys deep engagement in the arena of interreligious concerns, with regard to America's religious diversity broadly and Christian-Muslim relations specifically. As Director of Hartford Seminary's Multifaith Chaplaincy Program, she works quite intentionally on Abrahamic/Dharmic intersections as well. A musician by training and a lover of fine painting, sculpture, and weaving, her knowledge of the arts sometimes informs her lessons about religion.
