MEDIA REVIEWS
"Anyone who desires to pray Christian daily prayer offices will welcome this fresh revision of Benedictine Daily Prayer. Much easier to use with less turning of pages, a generous selection of psalmody, additional readings from patristic sources for all three years, arranged in two-week cycles-all these features make this a more accessible and rich resource for a wide ecumenical company of prayer. Indispensable to daily spiritual practice."
Don E. Saliers, Cannon Professor of Theology and Liturgy, Emeritus, Theologian-in-Residence, Emory University
"Everything you need to pray the monastic Liturgy of the Hours is here between two covers. If you are traveling, praying alone, or simply looking for patristic readings to enrich your lectio, this book will satisfy. It is both user-friendly and rich in resources. The Press has given us a truly liturgical treasure."
Irene Nowell, OSB, Mount Saint Scholastica, Atchison, Kansas
"Benedictine Prayer offers a resource for a Benedictine way of praying the hours which draws on both a rich tradition and on a lengthy experience of responding to pastoral needs since the 1940's. It will be particularly suitable for those who wish to pray the office outside the monastery but it will also be a helpful resource for any monastic communities who work to re-shape their own celebrations of the Work of God."Columba McCann, Ecclesia orans
"I loved this breviary. The jewel of the hours in this prayer book is Vigils. Indeed, this is a great prayer book."Mark Plaiss, Cistercian Studies Quarterly
"Between the two covers there is a rich treasury for praying an abridged monastic Liturgy of the Hours so that those who use it can enter into the daily rhythm of prayer that is at the heart of monastic life."Tjurunga
