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.
