About this deal

Using the lectio divina approach to passages drawn from Isaiah and Luke, An Advent Manifesto is an invitation to pray and practise that most ancient Advent prayer, ‘Come, Lord Jesus, come. He resists the temptation to use a wide variety of scriptural texts (there is enough of that in the liturgical lectionary already), and this gives his book a deeper focus on particular texts. Anyone who has traveled to the Island of Lindisfarne will know the gift of such "thin places", where the wonder and glory of heaven radiates into our ordinary lives. Anyone can go on and on about a given subject; it takes real skill and time to boil down what one wants to say to a few paragraphs. A section on rites of passage suggests prayers and rituals for the pivotal times of life: birth, rebirth, marriage, midlife, and bereavement, as well as blessings and graces for all occasions.

We are currently offering the option to purchase our Daily Office Cards, and the sheet music for May the Peace of the Lord Christ go with you, as PDF downloads. A slight change of gear at the weekend comprises a canticle from Isaiah, reflection, prayer, and contemplation intended more to link up with that Sunday’s liturgy.

Praying "Celtic Daily Prayer" several times a week, I have found this prayer guide a lovely way to deepen my intimacy with God and connect with my Celtic heritage.

In this delightful and illuminating look into a crucial but little-known 'hinge' of history, Thomas Cahill takes us to the 'island of saints and scholars', the Ireland of St Patrick and the Book of Kells. Celtic Daily Prayer Book 2: Farther Up and Farther In is the long awaited companion volume to Celtic Daily Prayer Book 1: The Journey Begins, also reissued in a new binding. Our lives are usually too full of noise, so this is the ideal moment of the day to experience real silence. He and his colleagues in the Community of Aidan and Hilda have produced a rich diet of Celtic prayer to enrich our daily cycle of prayer. This format works well, because there is deliberately not too much to take in: the author knows that we will be busy with other things; so any Advent discipline that we give ourselves needs to be do-able.If you pay attention to each day's reflections you will become part of a life-changing Advent adventure and Christmas will become part of you. These include Church leaders, ministry heads, and even some well known television personalities, all who come from a range of denominations and backgrounds. For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password. This traditionally grounded yet surprisingly modem prayer book will enrich the spiritual life of readers for years to come. Much practical thoughts from ones like Bill Hybels and Thomas Merton, Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, and those for whom labels cannot be attached.
