Reviews - What do customers think about 2000 Years of Classic Christian Prayers: A Collection for Public and Personal Use?
Communicating with God Feb 11, 2007
Some of the prayers are made into poems and I believe that they are or hard to understand at times. Prayers should come from the heart so God doesn't have to try to make out what you are trying to get across to him.
Hefty yet handy anthology of prayers Jul 24, 2001
Because this book is conveniently arranged by topic (18 larger categories, with several sub-categories in each), and is fortified by several indices (first lines; subjects; authors & sources; Bible references), this book is much more valuable and useful than many similar ones. Since about 250 sources have been mined, the offerings are rich and varied. Not only for personal devotion but especially for leaders of prayer and worship, convocation of church meetings and assemblies, and other public occasions which demand an inspirational word, this book is extremely useful. A note for American readers: it was compiled and published in Great Britain; therefore, the numerous selections from the Book of Common Prayer are not from that of the Episcopal Church in America (1979), but rather the much older English Book of Common Prayer. On the downside, no effort has been made toward inclusive or expansive language, even by the editor (e.g., the sub-category: "For God Himself"]. Nor has there been an attempt to include non-Christian (except for the most generic) prayers. But its size and price definitely make it a very good value.
