Product Description

Thomas Cranmer's Prayer Book of 1549 is a foundational document of the Anglican Church and a priceless part of English-speaking Christianity. Cranmer's unique gift of blending theological substance with simple, humble, and moving clarity has made the Collects (prayers) essential not only to the English liturgy but also to the pastoral tradition of the church: these prayers still remain a deep source of inspiration for Christians enmeshed in the everyday trials and testings of life.

Published on the occasion of the 450th anniversary of the Book of Common Prayer, The Collects of Thomas Cranmer presents this spiritually rich material in its original form and order. Compiled and presented for devotional use by C. Frederick Barbee and Paul F. M. Zahl, Cranmer's Collects are each followed by succinct commentary on their historical context and an insightful meditation crafted with contemporary Christians in mind.

Including a significant introduction to Cranmer and his work by C. FitzSimons Allison, this beautifully produced volume opens afresh Cranmer's classic devotional treasure to modern believers from all communions.

C. Frederick Barbee (1949-2004) was Canon of the Cathedral Church of the Advent in Birmingham, Alabama, and editor of The Anglican Digest.

Paul F. M. Zahl is Dean and President of Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania.

    The heart of this book are the prayers or collects of Thomas Cranmer. The brief historical comments help ground the prayers in the time they were written.

    These collects do indeed show the piety of the man. The commentary that follows each collect is very important in that it gives an insight to the individual. Very good reading.
