The mixture is rich, spreading across all centuries and needs. * Home and Family * All those who search for refreshing in prayer will want to avail themselves of this resource. * Baptist Times * I have often been thrilled at what I have found [here] . . . Leaders of prayer groups would find The SPCK Book of Christian Prayer very useful indeed, as would anyone who is responsible for a more informal type of service.
