About the Author

Few people stir my heart and challenge my faith like Pete Greig. In Red Moon Rising and now with Dirty Glory, Pete steps into my walk with Jesus and calls me to a journey of prayer that is raw and challenges the status quo at every turn. Before I was even through the introduction of Dirty Glory, I could feel my heart coming alive to what Jesus calls every believer to. That is a life lived with radical abandonment and childlike faith. A passion to see others experience the real and authentic touch of God in their lives. We were always meant to live on the edge, in the middle of the chaos, lifting up our hearts in prayer. We are to reach out to the broken and destitute. I am so grateful for the voice that Pete has been in my life, calling me out of the mundane and into the radical life of following Jesus and praying as he prayed.
Banning Liebscher, Pastor and founder of Jesus Culture

Pete Greig is a unique voice in the church, and this is a unique book. His words cut through any unnecessary religiosity but always remain reverent. Pete argues that the pressing need today is not for greater spiritual activity but for greater spiritual authority – and that the key to this is prayer. Nothing is sanitized here – this is a call to get your hands gloriously dirty in the service of God and to cry out in prayer for the world he so loves.
Matt Redman, Songwriter
