In an age where social isolation is as much a reality within our homes and families as it is in the outside world, Robert Webber invites us to turn off the television, and remember again what day this is, what season--to participate in a celebration of life's special occasions, joys, and difficulties as a family. With responsive readings of prayer and scripture such as are found in the widely used and revered "Book of Common Prayer, The Book of Family Prayer" provides a setting in which families can participate and grow in the often poetic and dynamically enriching discipline of household worship and devotion. Sections for all the seasons of the church year, special occasions, and non-festive seasons that include points of interest and discussion questions encourage families to grow in their awareness of the wonderful life around them and to mark the time that we might learn to be increasingly mindful of who we are as Christians and members of a family.
""The Book of Family Prayer" is a wonderful resource in bringing the life of prayer into the daily junctures of family experience. I commend it to you."
--Richard J. Foster, author of "The Celebration of Discipline" and "Freedom of Simplicity"
"For years I have been promising myself to compose and collect appropriate prayers for family gatherings. Now the work has already been done! The Mainses will be using "The Book of Family Prayer" in our own home."
--Karen Mains, author of "Open Heart, Open Home" and "The Key to a Loving Heart"
