By allowing us to read holy writings with ancient eyes, the church fathers help us drink deeply from the only water that can give us true life. A follow-up to the previous Ancient Christian Devotional, which follows lectionary cycle A, this devotional guide follows lectionary cycle C, which begins in Advent 2009. This guide to prayer and reflection combines excerpts from the writings of the church fathers as found in the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture with a simple structure for daily or weekly reading and prayer. There are fifty-two weeks of readings following the weekly lectionary cycle C, which you can read through in order or by thematic interest. Each day you will also find a simple opening and closing prayer drawn from the prayers and hymns of the ancient church. Come and find the deep nourishment God offers.
Cindy Crosby is the author of four books, including By Willoway Brook: Exploring the Landscape of Prayer. Together with Thomas Oden, she edited the companion Ancient Christian Devotional for lectionary cycle A.
Thomas C. Oden, formerly a professor of theology at The Theological School of Drew University, is general editor of the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture and author of numerous theological works, including a three-volume systematic theology.
"The Ancient Christian Devotional can serve as a good introduction for those with no exposure to these earliest teachers of the faith. And for those who have been using devotionals written more recently, this one will provide a distinct enough change that you will likely find yourself reading more slowly, refelcting more deeply, and wondering more fully."-- Critique, Issue 3, 2009
