Praying with the Gospels is a new series of books following the lectionary cycle which offers individuals ways of praying with the four Gospels. It encourages people to hear the distinctive voice of each Gospel, to explore what it teaches about prayer and to be led deeper into praying with the story of Jesus. Each volume includes a general introduction, followed by forty reflections and prayers on selected passages, focusing especially on our relationship to God in prayer and action, heart and living. God's Embrace follows the Gospel of Mark, and is the perfect accompaniment to Year B of the lectionary cycle.
All theology should be grounded in prayer, which is a good reason to welcome this series. Thoughtful and perceptive. -- Revd Dr David Cornick,General Secretary, Churches Together in England Terry is a gifted wordsmith - and also a scholar who has the gift of being able to communicate simply. -- Rev Dr Paul Beasley-Murray, Senior Minister of Central Baptist Church, Chelmsford What a delight to read a book which actually helps one to think, pray and preach on the Gospel passages of the lectionary. The idea of such a resource is splendid, and the brilliant introduction is informative, illuminating and accessible. -- Revd Tom Stuckey, Former President of the Methodist Church
