Item description for A Holy Island Prayer Book: Morning, Midday, and Evening Prayer by Ray Simpson...

The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is often called "the holiest place in England" because of all the saints who have lived there. St. Aidan and St. Cuthbert, two popular Celtic saints, are buried there. For more than 1,300 years pilgrims have made their way to this island, which now hosts half a million visitors a year. A Holy Island Prayer Book, with prayers for morning, midday, and night, follows the rhythms and seasons of the natural and Christian year as observed on Holy Island.

More contemplative than the earthy spirituality of communities such as Iona, each day of the week has a special theme:

Sunday: Resurrection and renewal

Monday: Creation

Tuesday: incarnation and peace

Wednesday: The Holy Spirit in mission and healing

Thursday: Community and unity

Friday: With broken people at the Cross

Saturday: Leisure (morning) and the Saints (night)

A Holy Island Prayer Book includes prayers by popular author David Adam, and is the perfect companion for anyone who has visited Holy Island, or those who are there in spirit.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Holy Island Prayer Book: Morning, Midday, and Evening Prayer?

Super book for self-structured prayer!  Sep 12, 2008
This is a wonderful book from the Christian community of Lindisfarne Island, off the coast of England. If you follow the book's structure, you will be taken through 5 weeks of prayers, 3 times per day. Each day has a theme, such as "New Life" or "The Cross," plus morning, midday and evening prayers for each of the 5 weeks, that also include 5 scripture readings per day. That is a total of 35 days of unique prayers, or 105 prayer sets in total that include 175 Bible readings.

Keep your Bible handy, since scripture passages each day are listed but not quoted. This keeps the book small, and allows you to use your favorite translation.

The style of many of the written prayers is traditional Celtic liturgical. There are also frequent quotes from ancient church figures, books, and documents that fit beautifully with the themes. As a relatively conservative Christian, I have enjoyed Ray Simpson's inclusion of all people and all creation as belonging to God, as is typical of Celtic style prayers, in a form that does NOT include an overtly liberal social adgenda.

I am currently finishing up on my first time praying though this book (a total of 35 days), and recommend it without reservation.
