Editorial Reviews

"Fr. John has done a great service to Christians everywhere by making the prayers of the early church available, particularly in such beautiful and accessible language. As we turn these pages we join with the saints of all ages in a united hymn of praise." —Frederica Mathewes-Green, author of Welcome to the Orthodox Church and The Illumined Heart

"For being such a slim volume, this book is heavy with the weight of glory. The Prayer Book of the Early Christians is a collection of prayers and prayer services modeled after the liturgies left to us from the ancient Church and used today in the Eastern Orthodox tradition. And having drawn from such deep wells, this prayer book presents its reader/user/pray-er with a treasury of ’prayers that have been tried and proved’ (p. ix)...Showing devotion through our actions, especially when our hearts don’t want to do so, can be one way to cultivate the heart’s participation in prayer. Over time, the disciplined practice of these prayers will yield the fruit of an inner disposition of fear, reverence, and deep love of God." —Christopher Brown, pastor, writer, and musician
