William Storey, compiler of some of the best-loved prayer books of our time, has selected the most beautiful elements from the full Liturgy of the Hours and from other sources to create a simpler book for Morning and Evening Prayer. Intended for individuals and groups who want to taste the venerable tradition of using scripture to offer praise, thanksgiving, and intercession at dawn and sunset, this new book provides a four-week cycle of prayer. Each hour includes a psalm, a canticle, and a brief reading from the Old or New Testament, interspersed with prayers that echo the biblical poetry. An introduction explains how to use the book, and supplementary sections offer an order for night prayer, basic prayers, hymns, and additional scripture readings. What an important and welcome new resource for prayerful people who want to sanctify their mornings and their evenings!
