Continuing its tradition of excellence, regular favourites and new contributors offer insightful, informed and inspiring reflections on the scripture readings of the day, based on the Common Worship lectionary for Morning Prayer. Stephen Cottrell, the Archbishop of York, is the guest contributor for Holy Week.
New voices this year include Gregory Cameron, the Bishop of St Asaph and author of the popular An Advent Book of Days and An Easter Book of Days; Chine MacDonald, author, broadcaster and Director of the religious think tank Theos; and Emma Parker, Deputy Warden of Cranmer Hall, Durham.
For every day (excluding Sundays) of the 2023-24 church year, there are full references and a quotation from the day's set of Scripture readings, concise and challenging commentary, and a collect.
Also included is a simple order for Morning and Night Rrayer, and additional helps for nurturing a habit of regular daily prayer.
