Item description for Christmastide: Prayers for Advent Through Epiphany from The Divine Hours (Divine Hours) by Phyllis Tickle...

Overview
"A welcome remedy for the increasing number of lay Christians who have rediscovered the daily offices. Tickle puts each day's prayers, psalms, readings, and refrains-everything you need-in one place. The rhythm that Tickle's book establishes gives one a stronger sense of participating in an ancient, worldwide but very personal liturgy." -Nora Gallagher, beliefnet.com, and author of Things Seen and Unseen: A Year Lived in Faith The third and final volume in a trilogy of prayer manuals compiled by Publishers Weekly religion editor Phyllis Tickle as a contemporary Book of Hours to guide Christians gently yet authoritatively through the daily offices. The Divine Hours is the first major literary and liturgical reworking of the sixth-century Benedictine Rule of fixed-hour prayer. This beautifully conceived and thoroughly modern three-volume guide will appeal to the theological novice as well as to the ecclesiastical sophisticate. Making primary use of the Book of Common Prayer and the writings of the Church Fathers, The Divine Hours is also a companion to the New Jerusalem Bible, from which it draws its Scripture readings. The trilogy blends prayer and praise in a way that, while extraordinarily fresh, respects and builds upon the ancient wisdom of Christianity. The third and final book in the set, Prayers for Springtime, provides prayers, psalms, and readings for this season associated with rebirth. Compact, with deluxe endpapers, it is perfect for those seeking greater spiritual depth. As a contemporary Book of Hours, The Divine Hours: Prayers for Springtime heralds a renewal of the tradition of disciplined daily prayer, and gives those already using the first two volumes the completion they are seeking. With this volume, the series culminates with three prayer manuals encompassing the liturgical and calendar year with the offices for every day.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christmastide: Prayers for Advent Through Epiphany from The Divine Hours?

Prayers for Advent  Feb 1, 2010
I was looking for some way to be more in touch with God during Advent. I'd had a terribly hard year, and had decided to start my new year along with the Church's new year. This book was exactly what I was looking for! I loved that it is the daily office, yet with the Advent readings. I ended up buyg some of her other pooks along the same lines. This is fantastic!
 
Great Book  Jan 12, 2008
The Christmastide book is the perfect book to use for those who are starting to learn about the Liturgy of the Hours. We used this book at my parish throughout the Advent Season before weekday morning mass. We have since adapted to the regular morning prayer, but this book is a great way to start before going to the full version. I would recommend this book to anyone! The only con is the small print.
 
Fixed hour prayer  Dec 18, 2007
Simple order of personal worship for each day in Advent and Christmas.
This is not a book to be read for pleasure, but instructions for those of us who did not grow up in churches that taught fixed hour prayer.
It is done in an easy way to follow.
Not quite liturgy for dummies, but close.
Very useful.
