Anglican Christians are the heirs to a rich tradition. No other family of churches has been praying in English as long as the Anglicans, whose prayers have been dominated by the rhythm and beauty of the Book of Common Prayer. Anglicans blend what is best from the Celtic, Orthodox Christian, and Roman Catholic traditions, and add to them ideas important to Anglicans - nature, incarnation, social justice, and more - to create unique and often beautiful prayers.

Give Us Grace provides an overview of Anglican prayers from the beginning of that tradition up to the present day. A collection that spans the ages and the continents, the book is arranged chronologically, from writers such as Miles Coverdale and Thomas Cranmer, through the sixteenth-century, and continuing with contemporary writers such as Desmond Tutu, David Adam, Madeleine L'Engle, and others. Biographies of each writer are provided. Prayers from a variety of Anglican prayer books, such as the First Primer of Edward VI, the New Zealand Prayer Book, and prayer books from South Africa, Kenya, Japan, Canada, Australia, and others also are included.

Give Us Grace is an excellent reference tool, a valuable devotional resource, and an ideal gift.
