Publisher's Description

From the very beginning of the church, Christians have found it helpful to pause for prayer during various times of the day. Whether for morning or evening devotions or other fixed-time prayers, such spiritual respites were deemed essential to worshiping God. Over the years, Christians developed a structure for such moments of worship, keyed to the time of day and season of the year. Part of its genius was the seamless integration of Scripture and prayer. This ancient practice, called the "Daily Office," has experienced a resurgence of use in our time.

Seeking God's Face is a user-friendly approach to this form of prayer and devotion. Each office includes a psalm of praise, a passage of Scripture, and a brief set of prayers. An introduction to prayer-book use from Eugene Peterson is included to acclimate readers to this form.

    I love this work. This devotional allows you to follow the church calendar through the year if desired, but you can just as easily use the current date if you wish. It uses well-chosen scripture along with helpful devotional direction. The result is a much richer, more 'efficient' prayer experience for the reader. It employs a most useful format that isn't pushy and doesn't just do my praying for me. Instead, it functions more like a 'devotional GPS' pointing the way for me to the highway in my prayer time. Not that this is some kind of 'speed-prayer' devotional, but rather, I find it often helps me get to my most enjoyable and edifying attitude of prayer much more readily and consistently than certain other times when praying without it. It's also a great tool for Lectio Divina, or Praying the Bible.

    I've had this book for about a year and a half and it's still in great shape, especially considering how often and long it has been in my hands or jostling around in a tote bag and even functioning as a coaster on my coffee table now and again. The cover is soft synthetic leather-like material with a matte finish in a nice tan color. The text block is sewn so it lies flatter on a surface or drapes comfortably over your hands. I found the font comfortably readable and the layout both functional and attractive. The paper is not tissue-thin but there is definitely ghosting although I personally did not find it distracting like some other books and bibles I've seen. The page edges are white, not gilded, so if you have it imprinted you might consider dry stamping (if available) unless you want the imprint to really stand out. It has one tan ribbon marker and tan headbands. The TNIV translation is used in most if not all of the quotations in the book and although it is not my preferred translation for study, I think it works fine in this application.

    I give this devotional a hearty recommendation for both its form as well as its content. I wish the price were about 20% lower, but then again, I think everything is overpriced these days. I gave it four stars on meeting my expectations because I would have liked to have seen a more 'grown up' translation, or at least a more interesting one, but that's just a personal pet peeve, and as I said, the TNIV used here is fine, but just fine. All the best, Beloved Friends!
