Book Description:
This intelligent and richly resourced collection, drawn together by Professor Eamon Duffy, brings together beautiful and memorable prayers and hymns from a wide range of sources. This is not a mere anthology of prayers, but rather a comprehensive guide to praying the big things of life and faith, using words with resonance and eloquence to convey a Catholic Christianity that stretches across Eastern and Western traditions, Orthodox as well as Latin Catholic. It offers guidance on the basics of the faith: how to prepare for confession, how to say the rosary, how to make the stations of the cross, material for saying morning and night prayers. This book is the result of Eamon Duffy's own deep devotional life throughout his distinguished academic career and will be deeply valued.

Book Description:
The poet George Herbert was born in1593 and died just before his fortieth birthday in1633.While an undergraduate at Cambridge, he wrote to tell his mother that he had resolved that the poetry he wrote would always be ‘consecrated to God’s glory’. He wrote poetry throughout his life, but we only know of it now because, from his death bed, he sent the manuscript of the collection of his poems known as ‘The Temple’ to his friend Nicholas Ferrar of Little Gidding. He asked him ‘to bring that piece into the world if he thought good of it, else to burn it.’ Ferrar thought so highly of it that he said ‘he could not sufficiently admire it, as a rich Jewell, and most worthy to be in the hands and hearts of all true Christians.’ Within a few months of Herbert’s death Ferrar had had the poems published, and thirteen new editions were published during the next seventy years. Today fewer people know Herbert’s poetry. Jane Falloon has written ‘Heart in Pilgrimage’ because of her desire that it should be more widely read and appreciated by non-academic lovers of literature. New readers will be astonished by its accessibility: his sentiments and humour are so modern and immediate: they will find that poem after poem gives them a feeling of wonder, delight, recognition of genius, sheer happiness, and shock. She has chosen twenty four of her favourite poems, and has added to each of them her own appreciation and critical analysis, combining her own commentary with that of such distinguished Herbert scholars as Helen Vendler, Elizabeth Clarke, T.S.Eliot, Seamus Heaney, and Dr. Rowan Williams the Archbishop of Canterbury, to whom the book is dedicated. She has introduced this selection with chapters on the life of George Herbert, and also of his friend Nicholas Ferrar, without whose efforts these wonderful poems would have been lost to the world.

Book Description:
Strannik is the Russian word for "pilgrim," one with a vocation-a unique, holy calling. Pilgrimage is more than something you `do.' `Being a pilgrim' consumes all of you. The pilgrim is to "be the Gospel and to preach it with his words and with his being." In Strannik, Catherine shows that pilgrimage is not just something for a few spiritual ascetics with wanderlust. Even less does it resemble the modern tourist-style `pilgrimages' that try to cover as many holy places as possible in the briefest time possible. Rather, the true strannik begins by looking within the self, where God already is. While the author does tell us about external pilgrimages such as she herself experienced as a child in Russia, the pilgrimages she is writing about are principally interior. Pilgrimage comes out of a quest for God. Catherine speaks of the "nostalgia for paradise" which all human beings have experienced since Adam and Eve. Without Christ we cannot complete our journey. "Christ was the pilgrim who pilgrimed from the bosom of the Father to the hearts of men and women."

Book Description:
The idea of pilgrimage has always provided an image of the inner life of the Christian, and this remains true for all who go on pilgrimage today. In the Middle Ages, the external aspect of travelling to the shrines of the saints was interwoven with the idea of the pilgrim’s inner journey to the heavenly Jerusalem. In the wake of the Reformation, Christian pilgrimage began to be portrayed as life itself, the way being the way of the cross and the end leading to joy.
