    Book details


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.

Review Text

  • By EJ Kingsley on 25 September 2015

    The Kindle edition of this lovely book has no daily dates at all. Just the opening month in which Service runs into Service, runs into Service and so on, until we reach the end! This makes it so difficult to know which day you're on. For a popular and inspiring liturgical book, covering the Daily Order of Service from Morning to Midday, Vespers to Compline, I am amazed it hasn't been formatted better. Phyllis Tickle includes preparation, prayers, readings from Scripture and short excerpts from the Church Fathers and well known Saints, as well as added psalms. All included in each Service for every day of the winter months; so no hopping back and forth and no need for any markers.But I have to ask... why on earth does Kindle leave out the date for each day??I would love to have my entire library on my Kindle but omitting such an important detail as this makes me think twice. I do like to carry my library around with me, so I've no choice but to put up with annoying 'snags' like this.
