In these days when everything seems to have to be made relevant, where people think they reach God by running faster, here is a book to redress the balance. Fr Martin Warner is the Anglican Warden of the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, the Marian Shrine in England loved and visited by Roman Catholics and Anglicans in full measure. In a world of noise and turbulence, where twanging guitars so often accompany Church worship, here is a book to encourage the habit of private prayer, meditation and devotion. Without waffle and sentimentality, the book is designed to encourage Christians in an age less confident about devotional practices. The book is not for liturgical use nor does it contain the liturgical texts of the Church of England or the Roman Catholic Church. It is a vademecum consisting of devotions from many traditions covering morning prayer, mid-day prayer, evening prayer, compline, prayers in the night, Sunday and mid-week prayer. Then Devotions to the Trinity, to the Saints, and occasional prayers. The concept and scheme of this book is intentionally traditional but it is very appealing for contemporary use.
