Chapters of Gold is a book of meditations on the life of Our Lady for modern busy people today. The short chapters are based on an episode in the life of Our Lady, the Annunciation, The Birth of Christ, the Finding of Christ in the Temple right through to the witness to the Resurrection of Christ. The chapters consist of a short narrative and meditation and are each illustrated with beautiful four colour plates based on the mosaics from the Lady Chapel at Westminster Cathedral. These have been specially photographed for this book. A preface by Archbishop Rowan Williams demonstrates the growing devotion to Our Lady in non Catholic Western traditions and is itself an ecumenical gesture of some significance. At the end of the book, the author has gathered a collection of prayers and devotions to Our Lady, Drawing from all Christian traditions. Devotion to Mary in the Eastern Orthodox tradition is every bit as strong as in the Roman Catholic Church (maybe even stronger) and she plays a growing part in the devotional lives of Anglicans. This is a book for people of all Christian traditions. Both Cardinal Murphy O'Connor and Archbishop Gregorios endorsed the book.
