The most extensive collection of Christian prayers available is now in paperback. Tracing two thousand years of Christian spirituality, it contains prayers from every era, every continent and every tradition. This extraordinary anthology provides a compelling and comprehensive portrait of the ways in which men and women have expressed their longing for God through the centuries.

Arranged chronologically, 2000 Years of Prayer covers every significant era of Christian experience: prayers from the early church in East and West, the Coptic Church, Celtic traditions, medieval and monastic spirituality, Italian spiritual writers, Teutonic mysticism, the Protestant Reformation, English Roman Catholics, the Puritans, Pietist, Pentecostal and Charismatic movements, and much more. A brief introduction to each chapter outlines the defining spiritual characteristics of the age and traces the development of our understanding of prayer. Biographies of authors whose prayers are included, as well as an index of authors, themes, and subjects.

Review:

"This resource is a must for every library." -- The Counselor, Feb. 27, 2000

"This vast collection of prayers...is a marvelous resource...with prayers both famous and obscure from most every major religious figure in the history of the church. 2000 Years of Prayer should be on the shelf of anyone serious about spiritual devotion." -- Religion and Liberty, Jan-Feb 2000

... a tremendous resource... helpful in the spiritual lives of many believers... A great volume! -- Edwin J. Stalter, Provident Bookfinder, 1999

... remarkably broad collection... treasure of prayer and a stimulant to growth in Christlikeness. I highly recommend ... rare treat... -- Gerald Studer, Mennonite Weekly Review

...invaluable resource for pastors and other worship leaders... or as a daily devotional prayer... magnificent... -- Dave "Doc" Kirby, PD on "Book Bit" radio, April 2000

...to be savored... deserves a diverse readership... the wisest, most restorative reading I have enjoyed in many a moon. -- C. Clifton Black, Princeton Theological Seminary

A beautiful hardcover book with marking ribbon to give as a gift or to keep. -- The Living Church

In ecumenical fashion, Counsell draws from Christian sources, East and West, Roman Catholic and Protestant. This would be an excellent resource for worship as well as a treasure for private devotion and reflection. -- Bookviews-Theological Book Service, January 2000

This resource is a must for every library! -- The Counselor

This vast collection of prayers is a marvelous resource... should be on the shelf of anyone serious about spiritual devotion. -- Gregory Dunn, as printed in Religion and Liberty
