A Year of Days with the Book Of Common Prayer Apr 25, 2008
What a wonderful way to start the day. Very easy and quick to read, with something to think about.
A Year of Days with the Book of Common Prayer Aug 31, 2007
This little book keeps me connected to the Book of Common Prayer EVERY DAY! Bishop Browning's comments are beautifully written and always seem to be what I need to hear on that particular day.
Not a guide to the Book of Common Prayer Oct 18, 2006
As the other reviewers note, the meditations are very insightful and inspiring. The format is very similar to the "Forward Day by Day" devotional guide with which most Episcopalians are familiar. Instead of Bible verses at the top of each day's entry, however, there are short excerpts from the Book of Common Prayer. You can turn to the BCP for the full text of the collects, rituals, and Psalms, but references are scattered throughout the prayer book. I was hoping for something that was a little more of an organized guidebook to the BCP, with the added benefit of devotions.
Watch over the Church, O Lord, that it may be led.... Aug 3, 2006
That it may be led to wise decisions. Nice little book of days based loosely on the Book of Common Prayer. Put it in the spare bedroom as something to read in the morning before getting up for that first cup of coffee.
Best Morning Meditations Ever Sep 2, 2005
Although these daily meditations are based on the Episcopalian "Book of Common Prayer" they are very universal in scope and should appeal to all faiths.
