Intended for Anglicans, this book of prayer and devotion incorporates the various texts approved by the Church of England. Containing prayers from different walks and stages of life, it features a section devoted to the Church's year and its seasons. It also aims to include material for people whatever their moods or needs at any particular time.
At the heart of The Pilgrim Prayerbook is the Eucharist, printed in the form recently approved by The Church of England (Common Worship). The Church has only one prayer-Christ`s prayer to the Father. The Eucharist draws people of all sorts and conditions to the Risen Christ and in this book are prayers in all walks and stages of life. An important section is devoted to the Church's year and its seasons and there is material for people whatever their moods or needs at any particular time. The book ends with a selection of quick prayers for immediate purposes.David Stancliffe has compiled a prayer book of astonishing range. The book is full of surprises and yet the structure is based on the solid foundation of the Church's life of prayer.There is nothing so perfectly designed for modern usage. Great attention has been paid to good clear typography and to printing the text with plenty of "space" as an aid to meditation and prayer.A perfect gift for confirmation or other special occasions and a lifelong companion.
