Description

A best-seller for more than a decade! This classic devotional and prayer book includes thematically arranged material for each week of the year as well as themes and schedules for 12 personal retreats. The authors have adopted the following daily format for this prayer book: daily invocations, readings, scripture, reflection, prayers, weekly hymns, benedictions, and printed psalms. The deluxe gift edition features Bible binding, a ribbon bookmark, and gold-edged pages.

1. The original resource, created for persons in professional ministry wanting to keep their relationship with God alive and vital.
2. Uses the Common Lectionary deviating from the ecumenical lectionary themes. The authors deviated from the ecumenical lectionary themes only when they felt other themes might be more helpful.

The back of the book contains12 monthly retreat models for a 1-day retreat. [NOTE that the same invocation, psalm, hymn, and benediction is repeated each day for a week.]
