Overview
"A welcome remedy for the increasing number of lay Christians who have rediscovered the daily offices. Tickle puts each day's prayers, psalms, readings, and refrains-everything you need-in one place. The rhythm that Tickle's book establishes gives one a stronger sense of participating in an ancient, worldwide but very personal liturgy." -Nora Gallagher, beliefnet.com, and author of Things Seen and Unseen: A Year Lived in Faith The third and final volume in a trilogy of prayer manuals compiled by Publishers Weekly religion editor Phyllis Tickle as a contemporary Book of Hours to guide Christians gently yet authoritatively through the daily offices. The Divine Hours is the first major literary and liturgical reworking of the sixth-century Benedictine Rule of fixed-hour prayer. This beautifully conceived and thoroughly modern three-volume guide will appeal to the theological novice as well as to the ecclesiastical sophisticate. Making primary use of the Book of Common Prayer and the writings of the Church Fathers, The Divine Hours is also a companion to the New Jerusalem Bible, from which it draws its Scripture readings. The trilogy blends prayer and praise in a way that, while extraordinarily fresh, respects and builds upon the ancient wisdom of Christianity. The third and final book in the set, Prayers for Springtime, provides prayers, psalms, and readings for this season associated with rebirth. Compact, with deluxe endpapers, it is perfect for those seeking greater spiritual depth. As a contemporary Book of Hours, The Divine Hours: Prayers for Springtime heralds a renewal of the tradition of disciplined daily prayer, and gives those already using the first two volumes the completion they are seeking. With this volume, the series culminates with three prayer manuals encompassing the liturgical and calendar year with the offices for every day.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fresh prayers in a dry season  Aug 12, 2006
Phyllis Tickle has compiled daily Psalms, readings, and historic prayers of the Christian faith into this easy-to-use daily prayer guide. It includes morning, mid-day, and evening prayers, as well as a "compline" section for bedtime. This book of prayers has broadened and deepened my prayer life in a season of spiritual dryness. Personal times of spontaneous worship and prayer are wonderful when the worshipper can feel God's presence and the wind of the Spirit at his/her back. However, in seasons of dryness, it is easy to drift into a state of prayerlessness because the inspiration doesn't come so easily. These prayers have helped me maintain a daily rhythm of practicing God's presence in the midst of spiritual dryness. These prayers, spoken out loud, by faith, can become like "daily manna" and "water from the rock". Dry souls needs daily reminders that God is still the Great Shepherd and Divine Compass who will guide them successfully to the other side of the desert. Although there is an occasional Marian (Mary-focused) prayer that makes this Protestant soul slightly uncomfortable, the majority of the prayers are straight from scripture and/or are greatly inspired by passages of scripture and can be formational for Catholics and Protestants alike.
 
Liturgy of the Hours for non-Roman Catholics  Jul 13, 2006
This book is wonderful and subtle and changes your life!

If the discipline of daily prayer (let alone several times a day!) has ever been a struggle for you then YOU MUST BUY THIS BOOK and the rest of the series!

I cannot even begin to stress the importance of stoppping for a time-out with God four times a day. Ms Tickle has done a terrific job of putting together prayers, hymns and short Bible readings (OT & NT) that will guide and change you. She has managed to compile what we all need in order to put the hurry and worry and stress of life into perspective. It will encourage prayer for self and others and re-focus you on the truly important aspects of life.
 
Excellent Prayer Resource  Jun 30, 2006
Tickle's "The Divine Hours" is a fresh and yet strongly traditional approach to praying the divine hours. Having each of the offices laid out for each day allows the one praying to engage fully in the prayer without the distraction of flipping through a breviary trying to locate which piece belongs to each particular office. In a culture where our time is so often at a real premium, this book makes it much easier to stop at the appointed times, engage in the presence of God, then return to business with a renewed sense of what it means to be a part of the kingdom of God. By praying the hours, as Tickle describes it, we all become a part of the "cascade of prayer" that flows continuously around the globe as the hours are kept by people all over the world.

I have long wanted to find a way to keep the divine hours, and this book is a real treasure in helping make that a reality. Each office offers something new to engage me--a reading, a hymn, or a prayer. The Prayer Appointed for the Week, repeated three times a day for a full week, becomes more than just words addressed to God. It begins to take root in my soul, creating a theme for the week in my own relationship with God.

Thank you to Phyllis Tickle for the work you have done in creating this series!!
