Reverberations, a digital forum on prayer, is produced in conjunction with the Social Science Research Council’s New Directions in the Study of Prayer initiative, which aims to generate innovative research on practices of prayer and to build an interdisciplinary network of scholars engaged in the study of prayer. Through a grants program led by a multi-disciplinary advisory committee, New Directions in the Study of Prayer currently funds twenty-eight scholars and journalists conducting research on practices of prayer throughout the world. The initiative is situated within the SSRC’s program on Religion and the Public Sphere, and is supported with funding from the John Templeton Foundation.
