Book Description

22 Feb 2008
Life has its rhythms. We all need to be able to cope with its ebb as well as its flow. We have to survive its darkness as well as its light. We face dry times as well as times of richness. To survive this intricate pattern, we need to have an overriding rhythm of prayer. We need to know that whatever is happening, we are loved by God, and in him we live and move and have our being.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and helpful ... 15 Dec 2009
This book has become my daily companion of late. Written by David Adam, former vicar of Holy Island (once visited never forgotten) it is a beautiful collection of prayers and readings in the tradition of Celtic spirituality.

The daily themes are helpful and Saturday includes a special section for Advent
(timely at the moment) The additional prayers at the back are also useful and complement the rest of the text.

As a recent convert to liturgy, I never fail to find this book uplifting, comforting and truly inspiring.

Warmly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition 18 July 2012
I was introduced to this book by my husband and find it vey useful, As I can no longer read ordinary books due to failing sight, I got the Kindle edition because you can enlarge the print. Unfortunately only certain elements will enlarge - the bible readings and other prose. Where there are prayers with responses the print remains very small and there are gaps which I am unable to read, I wonder whether Amazon and/or the author could look into this problem. There must be many others like me, Sorry if this is not the right place to air this, but it is such a precious book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful Book 19 July 2011
I have just come through a very difficult time with the help of this lovely little book. My curate introduced me to it and I wonder sometimes how I ever lived without it.

If anyone needs to be reminded that they are not alone or need a little extra prayer and comfort, then I would highly recommend this book.

I first downloaded this book on Kindle last year and inside were some gorgeous, medievil celtic illustrations, which perfectly helped to convey the timeless and ancient theme of 'The rhythm of life.' Well matched to the daily meditations and prayers for each day. A simple book to use, far easier to follow than the complicated Common Book of Prayer and Worship - and i loved it so much i decided to buy the 'in the flesh' paperback version to carry with me and to get the feel of the prayers on paper... for there's nothing quite like holding and feeling the pages of a spiritual book, somehow it makes it all the more special and personal. However, to my horror, the lovely illustrations had been 'updated' (although why the publishers felt the need to update a book of classic and timeless celtic prayers, i'll never know?) and replaced them with a new, ultra-modern, sketchy set of drawings that i feel are too modern! I shall try and ignore those rather insipid, vulgar lino-prints, which look like they belong more in a retro-edition of 'Vogue magazine' than in an ancient Book of Prayers; simply for the sake of the Author, David Adam, who has excellently set out a rhythm of meditation and worship in the time-honoured tradition of Morning, Midday, Evening and Night Prayer. At least these, praise God, have not been modernised!
