This collection of prayers offers a satisfying resource to all who are looking for collects in a contemporary idiom. Dramatic in their imagery, richly biblical in their language and skillfully connecting the bible readings of the day, they will enrich worship by focusing hearts and minds on the scriptures read in church - and all this in a style which resonates authentically with the longings and hopes of those seeking God in today's world. Although not authorised for use in the Roman Catholic church, clergy and worship leaders in many denominations now using the three-year lectionary will gladly welcome this splendid collection which includes prayers for every Sunday, holy day and major festival of Years A, B and C.
