The author--an Episcopal priest, poet, and drafter of many prayers and collects in use by the Episcopal Church today--has written a collection of prayers especially for sinners. In fact, you probably shouldn't buy this book unless you are a sinner. But, given the author's gentle understanding of sin as being 1) an inescapable aspect of the human condition; and 2) an opportunity for reclaiming joy and increasing wisdom, most readers of these beautiful and powerful prayers will number themselves gratefully among those of God's children who have stumbled and been reconciled from time to time.

This durably bound, pocket-sized volume with ribbon marker is the perfect, portable devotional aid. 156954 Jennifer M. Philips, Jennifer M. Phillips
