Only 8 left in stock (more on the way). In this small gem of a book there is no struggle to insert feminist terms, just a remarkably lucent use of words to point to the inexpressible as well as possible. This book honors the presence of God in all creation from galaxy to atom and expresses, I imagine, many people's experience of finding the holy in everything.

II John McQuiston (EN). Yet the hunger to know - and communicate with - the Sacred in some form remains strong.

The Century is a book about politics, philosophy and literature by Alain Badiou, first published in French by Éditions du Seuil in 2005; the English translation by Alberto Toscano was published by Polity Press in 2007.

Book of Common Prayer (BCP) is the short title of a number of related prayer books used in the Anglican Communion, as well as by other Christian churches historically related to Anglicanism. The original book, published in 1549 in the reign of Edward VI, was a product of the English Reformation following the break with Rome. The work of 1549 was the first prayer book to include the complete forms of service for daily and Sunday worship in English

For thousands of years men and women found meaning and a deep sense of belonging though faith in God. But today, traditional images of God (as an all-powerful father figure) and much standard prayer and worship language are no longer plausible for many believers. Yet the hunger to know - and communicate with - the Sacred in some form remains strong. In this unique prayer book John McQuiston, bestselling author of Always We Begin Again, provides morning and evening devotions for two weeks, plus complete Morning and Evening Prayer services, along with a Service of Commemoration for Our Union. All use a language for and about God that reflects contemporary understandings of God and God's actions in the universe. This pocket-sized devotional is an excellent resource for individuals and congregations who are seeking to worship in a language that acknowledges today's realities and theology.
  • I just wish I could get a hardbound or leather bound copy. This is the prayer book for contemporary contemplatives. It is straightfowardly mystic and yearns for the Mystery. It is a sure daily companion to remind us what is really real.

  • John McQuiston's paraphrases make for good reflection and meditation reading.

  • For those of us feeling uncomfortable with classical prayers, fudging the truth, not saying what we believe, this is a great resource; especially if you have to do public prayers.

  • Very acceptable theology for progressive Christians.

  • For those who find comfort in daily prayer or meditation this is the answer. Panentheism is the basis -- everything in God and God in everything.

  • I loved the way he spoke of the almighty,how great God is.morning and evening prayers. Also meditation,a longing to be closer to the Lord.

  • John McQuiston II has eloquently rewritten time-honored prayers and psalms in language expressing the kind of deep, pervading love that all true mystics demonstrate.

    McQuiston's prayers dispense with outmoded patriarchal language, preferring instead non-gendered terms for God and all things spiritual. In this small gem of a book there is no struggle to insert feminist terms, just a remarkably lucent use of words to point to the inexpressible as well as possible.

    This book honors the presence of God in all creation from galaxy to atom and expresses, I imagine, many people's experience of finding the holy in everything.

    If someone you know and care about is searching for a prayer book that speaks their language while maintaining a sense of wonder and awe, this is the one.
