The 2012 edition of Reflections for Daily Prayer features some of the writers who helped to make this daily prayer resource so hugely popular, including Jane Williams, Angela Tilby, Christopher Herbert and other readers' favourites. Reflections is popular with writers too and other established authors are contributing for the first time this year. Offering a high standard of spiritual and theological writing, Reflections for Daily Prayer provides inspiration for every day of the coming church year, excluding Sundays. Using the Common Worship Daily Prayer lectionary, for each day there is a list of the day's scripture readings, a short scripture quote, a thoughtful and challenging meditation on the day's readings and a prayer for the day. Previously published as quarterly volumes, Reflections is one of the most valued daily Bible reading guides.
