Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A wise rabbi once told me that it is not how many prayers we dont say that matters to God, but rather how many we do. That is important to all of us, but especially for beginners. If this is your first attempt to return to this most ancient of Christian practices, it is wise to remember that you are entering into a discipline and, like all disciplines, this one sits hard and heavy upon one at times. There are hours you will miss and/or some that you cant even begin to figure out how to observe. That is all right, for either the joy will carry you into greater joy and transmute the discipline into privilege, or you will find yourself simply the wiser and the richer for such experience as you have had. As the rabbi said, that is what matters ultimately."

In her acclaimed trilogy, The Divine Hours, Phyllis Tickle introduced modern Christians to the time-honored practice of "praying the hours." In this exquisite new volume, she provides a vibrant program of prayer dedicated to the anticipation of Christs resurrection.

Beginning with Ash Wednesday and moving through Lent and on to Easter Sunday, Eastertide provides the daily prayers that bring practitioners into the full spirit of this season. Each day is filled with psalms, readings from the Bible, and hymns of praise and worship, just as they appear in the larger volume, The Divine Hours: Prayers for Springtime. Newcomers to this beloved tradition will find that Eastertide is the perfect introduction to joining the ancients in the tradition of fixed-hour prayer.

Synopsis:

Many Christians are new to the practice of daily, formal liturgical prayer and are just discovering the powerful benefits for worshipping God this way. EASTERTIDE is the perfect introduction to the tradition of fixed-hour prayer. Elegantly designed, compact, and accessible, it is an ideal gift for those seeking spiritual guidance and renewal.

Beginning with Ash Wednesday and moving through Holy Week into Easter Sunday, EASTERTIDE provides the daily prayers, psalms, and readings from the Bible and hymns of praise and worship that appear in the larger volume The Divine Hours: Prayers for Springtime. Refreshingly contemporary yet grounded in one of the oldest forms of Western prayer, this exquisite new book is an insightful program of prayer for Christians dedicated to the contemplation of Lent and the celebration of Easter. Newcomers to this tradition will find that it is the perfect introduction to joining the ancients in prayer during the most solemn time in the Christian calendar.
