A great devotional to keep me focussed on the Word and others ahead of myself. This is a great book for pastors, especially those who are struggling with the weight of ministry. I was facing quite a few challenges and started using this book in my prayer time. It forced me to put the needs of the church and others first, and I notice that my prayer life changed dramatically (i.e. it became healthy once again).

If you are a liturgical church this book is also great preparation for the coming week's readings, and walks you through the church calendar. I've noticed that the seasons of a minister's life strangely coincide with the seasons of the Christian calendar (for me at least).

Definitely worth the purchase.

I love the way this devotional book is organized, according to the Litgurical Seasons of the Church Year. The scripture readings for each week, psalms, spiritual readings and prayers are meaningful and help give a structured approach to daily devotions. I have given this book as gifts as well.

This is a fantastic book and I ordered 2 copies as gifts for friends. The books were purchased new and were received in good condition, well packaged. The only problem was the delivery with it taking 3 weeks longer than other books purchased the same day from a different vendor but from the same country using the same mail system.

Provides a wonderful outline and schedule for getting into or maintaining the habit of daily prayer and devotions. The themes that permeate this book are Worship, Forgiveness, and Servanthood. This is a great tool to grow with!

I've used this book for about two years as a simple, predictable structure for prayer and bible reading. Each week, new area or faith is explored, following the lectionary used in most churches today. A simple invocation (or opening) prayer is presented, followed by a Psalm reading. Next is a reading on the subject, which is borrowed from other resources (these readings cross all boundaries in terms of geography and date written), followed by a Scripture reading. Next is a time of reflection, where one is encouraged to journal and reflect upon the topic in light of the information presented from man and the Word. Next is prayer time, a hymn, and a closing prayer. A weekly "recipe" with some ingredients provided, the book has a life span of 4 years, with the current edition 2001-2004.

December 1986 my family presented me with this book. I enjoy readings of William Barclay, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Carlo Carretto, Richard Foster, Carl Jung, C. S. Lewis, Henri J. Nouwen, Mother Teresa, Elton Trueblood, John Wesley, to name a few. But to have writings by these great authors compiled in one book is unimaginable. On top of that there are the lyrics of some of the most well known and loved hymns included in this book. There are monthly retreat models that can be done individually or with a group. The story "A Doll of Salt" by Anthony Bloom is a wonderful simile of our developing relationship with God. I have highlighted, written in the margins, and dogeared so many pages that I had to get a second copy because the first one is falling apart (and it was the leather bound copy). The readings are so inspiring and uplifting as well as thought provoking for the layperson as well as the ordained minister. If you are going to get this book I encourage you to get the leather bound for you will discover you will use it on a daily basis along with your Bible.
