More About Michael Counsell


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Michael Counsell is a priest of the Church of England (Anglican/Episcopal), and was in charge of a church in Singapore in 1968 when he was asked to become British Embassy Chaplain in Vietnam during the Vietnam War, with responsibility for caring for English-speaking people in the whole of Vietnam and Cambodia . Nervously he accepted the appointment, and with his wife and first child lived there for almost four years. He made many friends among the Vietnamese and expatriate populations, and started to learn the Vietnamese language - he had already started on Chinese in Singapore. His friends told him of the great epic poem about the life of Kieu, by Nguyen Du - probably the greatest work in Vietnamese literature. He made it his hobby over the next few years to translate it into English verse, with the same scansion and rhyme-scheme as the original, in order that English-speakers might better understand the culture of the land. He revisited Vietnam in 1994, extending his enjoyment of its charming people and beautiful scenery, when the The Gioi Publishers asked if they could publish his translation in a bilingual edition, since when it has been very popular. Later a new edition was published with beautiful new pictures. From 1972 till the present, Michael has cared for churches in the Seychelles Islands, Birmingham and London, and also worked for a year for a travel company leading pilgrimages. He retired in 2000, He has continued to travel widely, in Europe, north America and the Far East, and has also published many books on religion.

Michael Counsell currently resides in London. Michael Counsell was born in 1935.

Reviews - What do customers think about 2000 Years of Prayer?

God's Footsteps  Jan 17, 2003
As is air to a balloon and as energy to the human body, so prayer is to human dreams and hopes. Though filled with prayers, Michael Counsell's collection is a small fraction of the rich treasure trove of Christian prayers for two millennia. That accounts for some favorites missing, such as, Chief Seattle (1790-1866) and failure to mention John Newton's "Amazing Grace" (346). The historical sourcing is priceless from Gloria Patri and Doxology (Thomas Ken, 294) to Reinhold Niebuhr's Serenity Prayer (1934, 451) and more. God's footsteps show through their prayer life.

No tiresome compendium, it opens a brilliant cascade of light touching upon and helping every condition of the human heart, joyful to grief-stricken.

In spite of few errors, birth-death dates of Menno Simons (1496-1561, 183) and George Whitefield (1714-1770, 319) and Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887, 421), and a few misspellings (410, 464, 546), Counsell's book will enrich every reader's spiritual life. And perhaps he will grace us with a companion volume. It is not too much to say that every pastor and seeker should read it.

A Useful Reference  Jul 17, 2000
This book, while it contains many "pretty" texts, would be most useful and interesting to someone who has studied or has an interest in church history or theology.

This is a large and sweeping collection, and attempts to represent everyone from Clement of Rome to the Cappadocians to sixth-century Chinese Nestorians to Julian of Norwich to Ulrich Zwingli to Teresa of Avila to the Puritans to Isaac Watts to Susanna Wesley to Jonathan Edwards to Samuel Taylor Coleridge to John Newton to Soren Kierkegaard to the Bronte sisters to Robert Louis Stevenson to Dwight Moody to Harry Emerson Fosdick to e.e. cummings to James Weldon Johnson to the Taize Community to Janet Morley to Thomas Merton to Billy Graham. Each entry contains a brief but generally helpful paragraph to "set the scene." I only wish his footnotes, which deal mostly with intellectual property rights, gave more information on his primary sources, although that would probably turn it into an unmanageable tome.

I'd mark this one a "must have."
