Editorial Reviews

"Rich and enriching resources for the recovery of a life of prayer. More difficult, perhaps, than any other truth we may glimpse in the midst of what we know as ’the time being,’ is the efficacy of penitential prayer; most elusive is the ’bright sorrow’ that couples our repentance with joy. With this book, many will find their way to this inestimable blessing." —Scott Cairns, author of Slow Pilgrim: The Collected Poems

"A rich feast." —Lauren F. Winner, author of Still: Notes on a Mid-Faith Crisis

"Between Midnight and Dawn is an imaginative collection of poetry and prose that reveals what great literature is at its core: a psalm, a cry against the darkness, a prayer." —Ashlee Cowles

"I may just be a bit smitten with this book." —Ann Voskamp, author of One Thousand Gifts

"Like a scribe trained for the kingdom of heaven, she brings out treasures new and old to illuminate the mysteries of God’s saving ways." Michael S. Poteet,The Sci-Fi Christian

"What a delight, to find so extraordinary a collection." Kathleen Norris, author of Dakota and Cloister Walk

"’It is nearly impossible to read a poem both quickly and well,’ Arthur warns, and so she advises the reader to go slow, savoring the psalm and scripture passages she offers for each section, extending the readings over several days. Perhaps Arthur knows that we often have to be seduced into seeing the depths of the darkness, and thus she eases the way with a framework that looks like a traditional devotional book—opening prayer, scriptures, readings, personal prayer and reflection, closing prayer.  But in those readings are the weight and wonder of the ages.  This is explosive stuff Arthur has brought together—again, too much to be absorbed in the sittings of a single Lent and Easter. But for those who see God’s hand in the devastating beauty of art and human word, this guide is a balm and a window to a deeper experience of the season." —Alex Joyner, The Englewood Review of Books

"A thing of beauty!"the late Phyllis Tickle, author of The Divine Hours

"What a gem of a book, a great resource for preachers, pray-ers, or anyone who likes such intelligent devotional material." Byron Borger, Hearts and Minds Books
