Item description for The Divine Hours: Prayers for Autumn and Wintertime (Divine Hours) by Phyllis Tickle...
Overview A volume in a three-part series of prayerbooks presents a seasonal collection of daily devotions, prayers, psalms, meditations, and readings that are drawn from the Book of Common Prayer, the writings of the Church Fathers, and the New Jerusalem Bible. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.
Publishers Description The second 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 second book in the set, "Prayers for Autumn and Wintertime, "provides prayers, psalms, and readings for these two festive seasons. Compact, it is perfect for those seeking greater spiritual depth. As a contemporary Book of Hours, "The Divine Hours: Prayers for Autumn and Wintertime" heralds a renewal of the tradition of disciplined daily prayer, and gives those already using the first volume the continuity they are seeking. The series will culminate in a third volume for springtime, completing the liturgical and calendar year with the offices for every day.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Divine Hours: Prayers for Autumn and Wintertime?
Wonderful book Jan 9, 2007
For anyone looking to pray the Hours, this is an easy way to do it. Each day's prayers are very easily accessible and very easy to follow. It really does not take that much time out of the day, and the time to pause and pray throughout the day is its own reward. Thank you Phyllis Tickle for bringing the Divine Hours to all of us.
The Divine Hours: Prayers for Autumn and Wintertime Jan 5, 2007
I purchased this book to complete my set. There are three altogether to pray through an entire year. For anyone desiring to have a more "liturgically-based" prayer life in concert with the historical Christian church, they could not find a better tool. I have been waiting for something like this for a very long time. It is complete in itself needing no outside resources and very easy to follow. It is exactly what I have needed. Thank you Phyllis Tickle.
