    This second edition is very similar to the first It's a nice handy 145 page glossy hardback guide to prayer It has a simple rule for morning midday evening and night prayers for each day of the week David Adam accomplished author on Celtic spirituality who was vicar of the Holy Island of Lindisfarne for thirteen years draws from several sources some historical and others contemporary to color the daily rhythm Though it is geared for communal prayer it is still usable for those who are aloneEach day of the week resounds with a specific theme Sunday is resurrection; Monday reflects on creation; Tuesday is shaped by incarnation; Wednesday is filled with the Holy Spirit; Thursday thinks about community; Friday gazes at the cross; and Saturday recalls the fellowship of the Saints There are short litanies; Psalm recitations; small Scripture readings; praises; and collects About ten years ago I obtained copies of the earlier edition for everyone living at home and we used it for a year in family worship And I have recently picked up the second edition and utilized it in my personal daily devotionsThe main differences between the first edition and the second are visual Not only has it been turned into a glossy hardback but the cover is a soft set of blues with a watercolor beach scene The art work between the covers has changed as well leaving behind the Celtic textures and taking on an abstract pencil sketch The textual changes are minor mainly moving away from the Alternative Service Book of 1990 and moving toward Common Worship Daily Prayer If you're looking for a tool to help keep you on track with daily prayer The Rhythm of Life will work If you're in need of a break from your normal devotional routine this prayerbook would be a great way to give you a temporary change up Or maybe your in a communal setting such as a deployed military unit college fellowship or retirement facility and you have compatriots who desire to pray together this is ideal for such settings The volume will fit in your purse slide into your satchel and unobtrusively sit on your desk This little prayer book is ideal for anyone who would benefit from a structure or routine to keep them praying without ceasing I highly recommend itMy happy thanks to Church Publishing who sent me a copy of the second edition used for this review The thoughts contained in this review are freely given without any demands or stipulations by the publisher

    A nice handy 136 page paperback guide to prayer It has a simple rule for morning midday evening and night prayers for each day of the week David Adam draws from several sources some historical and others contemporary to color the daily rhythm Though it is geared for communal prayer it is still usable for those who are aloneEach day of the week resounds with a specific theme Sunday is resurrection; Monday reflects on creation; Tuesday is shaped by incarnation; Wednesday is filled with the Holy Spirit; Thursday thinks about community; Friday gazes at the cross; and Saturday recalls the fellowship of the Saints There are short litanies; Psalm recitations; small Scripture readings; praises; and collects About ten years ago I obtained copies for everyone living at home and we used it for a year in family worship And I have picked it up and utilized it in my personal daily devotions I recently took it up again If you're looking for a tool to help keep yo on track with daily prayer The Rhythm of Life will work It will fit in your purse slide into your pocket and unobtrusively sit on your desk This little prayer book is ideal for anyone who would benefit from a structure or routine to keep them praying without ceasing I highly recommend it

    Beautiful little daily prayer book written by the author during his time as Rector of Holy Island Lindisfarne It had sat waiting on my shelf for perhaps a couple of decadesIt is based on a seven day cycle with a different liturgical theme for each day Resurrection Creation Incarnation Holy Spirit Community The Cross and The Saints The prayers draw on the established tradition but Adam is a poet in his own right so there is some original material too I moved on to this one after spending nearly three months with one of Phyllis Tickle's prayer books This one is personable warmer somehow This sense was helped in no small part by a open page layout in a pocket sized book featuring some wonderful Celtic illustrations that I grew to appreciate almost as much as the prayers themselvesAlongside this book I found another by David Adam on my shelf his first collection of poems and prayers 'The Edge of Glory' 1985 which I've now embarked upon The great news is that Adam these days retired and in his 80s has been uite prolific in his writing so there is much to explore yet

    This is one of my favorite book for individual or small group prayer The prayers are worshipful thematic by the day and leave room for adding your own prayers in the midst of the framework Each is also beautiful and saturated with scripture which makes this pleasant as well as didactic

  5. Jon Newswanger Jon Newswanger says:

    This is not a book to be read just once rather a book that is read gradually through the year with new thoughts and foci for each day and seasonEven though the Mennonite Church has started to add some liturical elements to it services it is a relatively new experience for me a life long Mennonite to experience the liturgical traditions of Anglo Catholocism albeit with some Celtic overtones

  6. David Campton David Campton says:

    This book is a spiritual gem For those not brought up in a Christian tradition that practices the daily offices or those who are overly familiar with one denominational order this is an accessible and framework of daily prayer broadly based on the Celtic tradition One of David Adam's best
