Details

This source of strength and solace for millions of Christian clergy and laypeople throughout the world can be a companion for your own spiritual journey. First published in 1549, the Book of Common Prayer has perhaps influenced the way English speakers think and talk about God as much as any book outside the King James Bible. Today almost 80 million Anglican Christians throughout the world use the Book of Common Prayer in public worship, and countless people—Anglican and otherwise—use it in their private devotional life.

In this unique presentation of selections—organized by themes such as “Blessings in Times of Joy and Pain,” “Called to Serve,” and “Praise and Petition”—C. K. Robertson offers helpful commentary, with fascinating insights into the history and heritage of the Book of Common Prayer. He makes available the riches of this spiritual treasure chest for all who are interested in deepening their life of prayer, building stronger relationships, and making a difference in the world.

This reader-friendly volume includes a foreword by Katharine Jefferts Schori, the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, and a preface by Desmond Tutu, archbishop emeritus of Cape Town.
