MEDIA REVIEWS
'Most prayerbooks leave the reader to get on with the praying himself. Rather different is The Catholic Prayerbook from Downside Abbey. The editor, Dom David Foster, draws on the great saints of west and east as well as King Charles I and even anonymous boys at Downside School. Its great value for a pitifully inadequate praying man, such as myself, lies in his thoughtful introductions to the major prayers and discussion of the best way to go about the exercise. Sometimes one can stick to established texts, at other just use their opening words to launch into our own. If this goes badly, switch back to somebody else's prayer, he counsels.'
David Twiston Davies, The Catholic Herald
'This book should provide a treasure-trove for anyone who has to improvise services, prayer-meetings or assemblies, and above all for the ordinary Christian who needs a focus, a text, or perhaps even a point of departure for prayer.'
John Sullivan, Priests and People
'I welcome the publication of this Prayerbook. It is indeed a treasury. I am sure that all those reponsible for leading prayer in our Catholic schools will benefit from it. I think it would make a wonderful present for many youngsters at the time of their Confirmation. It could become their treasured companion on the pilgrimage of life.'
Bishop Vincent Nichols, Department for Catholic Education and Formation
