Canterbury Press, 2011 RRP $29.95
Reviewed by Wendy Scott, Kenmore Uniting Church.
This 200-page paperback is a great source of comfort and direction for group or individual prayers. There is a short paragraph for each day of the year plus readings, psalms and responsive prayers of the style used in formal and catholic services. The book is a compilation of four previously published works by the author, and left in these sections.
Some of the prayers pack a punch, demanding a personal reassessment, whilst others provide the comfort of a warm hug. Others already have asked me to share this book. It will be well travelled, though I hope it comes back to me later. This is not a read-straight-through and ignore book.
Home groups, churches and individuals would all benefit from having this volume.
