Editorial Reviews

Review

This is the book that Episcopalians have needed for the last forty years but hasn't existed until now--a true field manual for Prayer Book spirituality.
--Daniel H. Martins, Bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Springfield

Too often, the Book of Common Prayer is open to a few familiar pages on Sunday and closed the rest of the days, with little regard to the deep, transformative spirituality inside. With humor, deep reverence, and academic insight that is anything but dry and boring, Derek Olsen reminds us of the breath of the Spirit, the lives of the saints, the love of Jesus, and the magnificence of God held in the words, silence, and worship of our Book of Common Prayer. Clergy and laity should read this to discover and re-discover the daring words and liturgies of our faith spanning eons and to engage the prayers and worship of our faith.
--Laurie Brock, Episcopal priest and author of Where God Hides Holiness: Thoughts on Grief, Joy, and the Search for Fabulous Heels

Derek Olsen is the patron saint of the overlooked; campaign manager of the undervalued; tour guide to the taken for granted. His patient, scholarly watchfulness and his gift for rendering complex ideas in clear, concise prose make Inwardly Digest an insightful guide to The Book of Common Prayer and a sure and steady companion to Anglican spiritual practice.
--Jim Naughton, Founder of Episcopal Cafe and partner of Canticle Communications

Written in an engaging style that is both conversational and informative, Inwardly Digest is a timely invitation to life in the Spirit sustained by the patterns and rhythms of the Prayer Book.
--Frank Griswold, 25th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church

With the spiritual foundation of the Book of Common Prayer, Derek Olsen shows how everyday Christians can grow closer to God through a "training regimen" that incorporates the spirituality of Anglican liturgy as a daily practice. In straightforward and accessible writing, Olsen provides a guide to Prayer Book spirituality for everyone.
--Susan Brown Snook, Episcopal priest and author of God Gave the Growth: Church Planting in the Episcopal Church

From the Back Cover

Have you ever wondered if there was some kind of a guide to living a deeper, richer spiritual life that seamlessly incorporated scripture alongside the wisdom of the Church? There is--and you can find it in a pew rack near you! The Book of Common Prayer is more than a service book; it is a map to a deeper relationship with God, a framework for developing a more intentional and rewarding life of faith.

Scholar Derek Olsen explores liturgical spirituality and how the prayer book serves as a repository of Christian wisdom and spiritual practice stretching back to the beginnings of the Christian movement.
