Overview

In an age where social isolation is as much a reality within our homes and families as it is in the outside world, Robert Webber invites us to turn off the television, and remember again what day this is, what season--to participate in a celebration of life's special occasions, joys, and difficulties as a family. With responsive readings of prayer and scripture such as are found in the widely used and revered Book of Common Prayer, The Book of Family Prayer provides a setting in which families can participate and grow in the often poetic and dynamically enriching discipline of household worship and devotion. Sections for all the seasons of the church year, special occasions, and non-festive seasons that include points of interest and discussion questions encourage families to grow in their awareness of the wonderful life around them and to mark the time that we might learn to be increasingly mindful of who we are as Christians and members of a family.
