Format: Paperback
Three of the earliest known texts on prayer - this book provides good insights in early Christian liturgy, hours and postures for prayer. The introductions to the texts are well done and appropriate in length. All three authors emphasize the importance of the becoming like Christ through the transforming power of prayer and the centrality of the Eucharist in Church worship. Origen's text in particular is one of the foundational texts of the contemplative tradition of the Christian East. May your prayers be set aflame.

Although some of the material is a tough "slog", there are quite a few insights which help the reader better understand the foundations of the prayer and provide a deeper understanding of it. Although Cyprian is most understandable, Origen provided the best insights.

These are priceless writings on the "Our Father" that are together in one place. For anyone seeking to enrich their prayer experience, this is a great book. I especially like the strength and directness of St. Cyprian.

A good way to explore early Christian views on prayer. All three authors stress the seminal Christian prayer, the Lord's Prayer. It is interesting to see the different versions of the prayer (Matthew's and Luke's) both commented on. Origen's essay demonstrates the difference that reading the Greek text of the Lord's Prayer makes by bringing up issues such as "arkos ousios" and its possible meanings. This concern is eliminated by the Latin and ultimately English versions. The richness of Origen's commentary is a surprise after the more predictable works of the two Carthaginians. A wonderful experience reading all three!
