The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments Together with the Psalter Book Description :
The author explains one of his secrets behind the powerful witness of his own life--that he had learned to pray the Psalms and from them drew on the power of God in his years of imprisonment--in a new edition that includes a brief biographical sketch by a friend and biographer of the author, which helps us understand the man who used the Psalms as his prayer book.

First published nearly 30 years ago, Destined for the Throne continues to train believers for their heavenly destiny. God's eternal purpose, Billheimer says, has been the preparation of an eternal companion for His Son. This preparation takes place as Christians engage in spiritual warfare and practice believing prayer. "[A] thorough presentation of God's total purpose and destiny for the church...satisfying and demanding," said Norman Grubb, former International Director of WEC.
In PRISON TO PRAISE Merlin Carothers describes how his life was transformed by finding faith in Christ. Using many stories from his own experience as a US army chaplain, he issues a radical challenge to praise God in all circumstances. 'Miracles, power and victory will all be part of what God does in our lives when we learn to rejoice in all things,' he promises.
Morning, Midday and Evening Prayer and Complies with Meditations for the day and four years of Daily Readings from Books 1 and 2.
Fresh new material for a daily prayer discipline Authorized for use by the General Convention of the Episcopal Church Available in English and Spanish (separate volumes) People in all kinds of religious traditions, including Judaism and Christianity, have been marking time with prayer for almost as long as we’ve divided the day into hours. “Praying the hours,” as it’s called, has always reminded us that God walks with us throughout each day; “praying the hours” is also a way that the community of faith comes together, whether we’re united all in one place or scattered like raindrops. In the Episcopal Church, the Book of Common Prayer offers beautiful services for morning, noon, evening, and nighttime in a section called “The Daily Office” (pp 35-146). Daily Prayer for All Seasons offers a variation on that theme, a shortened version, where a complete service covers one or two pages at most, thereby eliminating the need to shuffle prayer books and hymnals. Daily Prayer for All Seasons works for individuals, small groups, and/or congregations. This prayer book presents a variety of images of God, uses inclusive and expansive language for and about God, and presents a rich variety of language, including poetry, meditation, and prayers from the broader community of faith. For Episcopalians - and others - interested in the daily office and praying the hours.
“I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voice—not because of his voice, or because he was the smallest person I ever knew, or even because he was the instrument of my mother’s death, but because he was the reason I believe in God; I am a Christian because of Owen Meany.” In the summer of 1953, two eleven-year-old boys—best friends—are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy’s mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn’t believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God’s instrument. What happens to Owen, after that 1953 foul ball, is extraordinary and terrifying.
Merton shows us how to draw out the richness of worship from the psalter and to use it to achieve "the peace that comes from submission to God's will and from perfect confidence in him".......Catholic Review Service
