Here are daily prayers, scripture readings, psalm recitals, and the services marking such religious milestones as baptism, confirmation, and marriage, all from the 1662 edition, whose influence can be seen in the work of some of the greatest writers in English literature, from Donne and Swift to Austen and the Brontës. This beautiful deluxe edition includes a new introduction by The New Yorker's book critic James Wood, discussing how The Book of Common Prayer has influenced the English language and literature.

An invigorating view of faith from the first African American Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. “What the Church needs, what this world needs, are some Christians who are as crazy as the Lord. Crazy enough to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, to forgive like Jesus, to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God—like Jesus. Crazy enough to dare to change the world.” From the very first page, Bishop Michael B. Curry’s fresh, robust take on religion is unafraid to ask the tough questions. Crazy Christians is an upfront, unflinching call to those who boldly follow Christ and dare to march to beat of their own drum. Filled with inspiring sermons, including Bishop Curry’s acclaimed 2012 General Convention address, this inspiring book takes a provocative look at what it really takes to make a difference. Bishop Curry encourages all of us to let go of conventions and embrace the craziness of believing we can change the world for the better.

• Revised edition of a bestseller • Sharpened focus, new sections, expanded glossary • Adapted for wider range of uses and settings The original Episcopal Handbook, published in 2008, was an instant classic and has been a bestseller ever since. Still providing helpful and insightful information about the Episcopal ethos with a certain amount of whimsy and complete accessibility, this revision maintains the best features of the original work, but adds an update and an expansion on the church today. In addition to updating out-of-date references and correcting a few inaccuracies, the revision highlights Episcopal diversity—including more women and people of color in the biographical material—as well as focusing more on Episcopalians rather than Anglicans. Some new illustrations are included as well. Some material originally presented in tabular form has been adapted into a more accessible narrative format. This includes new sections on church governance, the origins of religious belief, and a capsule summary of church history. The glossary has also been expanded. The goal is to provide a book suitable for a wide range of uses and settings: for Sunday schools, confirmations, inquirer classes—and for everyone from visitors to vestries. The revision brokers an incredible compendium of information in an informal, user-friendly, and accessible format. For lifelong Episcopalians, newcomers, and those wishing to sample and explore the beliefs and organization of the denomination.

People in all kinds of religious traditions, including Judaism and Christianity, have been marking time with prayer for almost as long as we've divided the day into hours. "Praying the hours," as it's called, has always reminded us that God walks with us throughout each day; "praying the hours" is also a way that the community of faith comes together, whether we're united all in one place or scattered like raindrops. In the Episcopal Church, the Book of Common Prayer offers beautiful services for morning, noon, evening, and nighttime in a section called "The Daily Office" (pp 35-146). Daily Prayer for All Seasons offers a variation on that theme, where a complete service covers one or two pages, thereby eliminating the need to shuffle prayer books and hymnals. Daily Prayer for All Seasons works for individuals, small groups, and/or congregations. This prayer book presents a variety of images of God, uses inclusive and expansive language for and about God, and presents a rich variety of language, including poetry, meditation, and prayers from the broader community of faith. Approved for use by the General Convention of the Episcopal Church Deluxe edition makes a great gift Features bonded leather, 2 ribbon bookmarks, gilded edges, a presentation page, shrink-wrapped, and placed in a quality gift box Episcopalians are bound together by prayer, and when we draw those prayers from our diverse traditions and cultures, we come closer to the heart of God. "Daily Prayer for All Seasons" gives us prayers, poems and meditations in many voices to mark the hours of the day and the seasons of the year. I am grateful to the leaders from across the Episcopal Church who have collaborated on this important new set of prayers for everyday life. -- The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president, House of Deputies of The Episcopal Church A call to prayer that sounds through the hours of our days and nights, revealing God with us as the seasons turn. This generous book is simple and rich at the same time, full of beauty and shaped for use. May it open the prayer of those who pray alone and deepen the prayer of groups. --Sara Miles, Director of Ministry, St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church, and the author of Take This Bread and City of God, San Francisco, California Daily prayer, most especially the Daily Offices, has been characteristic of the Anglican liturgical tradition for more than four centuries. As the prayer book tradition has been reshaped by being planted in many diverse nations and cultures, the forms of daily prayer have been modified. Daily Prayer for All Seasons marks another stage in that evolution by asserting that, even in complex and busy lives, we are still called to turn our hearts and minds to God in remembrance that our very lives are God's first gift to us. --The Rev. Dr. Louis Weil, James F. Hodges and Harold and Rita Haynes Professor Emeritus of Liturgics, Church Divinity School of the Pacific Pray at all times and when necessary use words. These prayers will help you pray at all times and find the right words when necessary. In their diversity, these prayers are manna from heaven for folks who are seeking new and creative ways of prayer. This book will teach you how to pray. --The Reverend Mark Francisco Bozzuti-Jones, Priest for Pastoral Care & Community and Staff Chaplain, Trinity Wall Street Episcopal Church, New York, NY For stillness in the scrum of commuting; for peace and guidance during retreat; for vigor and hope in the midst of the day's work; for healing and wholeness in rest at the end, we pray - and may you and each community of which you are a part use this graceful gift to pray as well. --- The Most Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church
