About the Book
From The Lord's Prayer and Footprints, to excerpts from "The Pilgrims Progress" and "A Christmas Carol," this timeless collection of prayers, quotes, and poems is a great source of inspiration when planning for a ceremonial occasion, speech, wedding, or funeral; or equally useful for personal devotions. The many contributors include C. S. Lewis, Florence Nightingale, St. Francis of Assisi, John and Charles Wesley, John Stott, Oswald Chambers, and G. K. Chesterton. Each reading is introduced with a brief history to the piece and its author, providing new levels of interest and a sense of context. For example, the book features a poem from Minnie Louise Haskins that King George VI quoted in his address to the nation shortly after the outbreak of World War II, and also includes both Hugh Latimer's and William Tyndale's last words. The 300 hand-picked pieces have been arranged alphabetically, and is also accompanied by a set of indexes which detail first lines, themes, Bible references, and authors, enabling readers to make the most of this fabulous selection.
