From the PublisherDiarmaid MacCulloch
-- in Sixteenth Century Journal
"For those who are interested in the way that the sixteenth-century Reformation interacts with contemporary theological concerns, there is much to ponder in this slim volume."
"This lovingly prepared edition of the Anglican Collects, or short prayers, which first appeared in this form in the Book of Common Prayer of 1549, should pique the interest of both religion scholars and devout communicants. . . Recommended for most collections, especially those strong in Christian spirituality."
-- former Archbishop of Canterbury
"Thomas Cranmer was a master of the English language, and the Prayer Book is an essential element of the rich legacy of faith, devotion, and liturgy that belong to our heritage. . . This edition of the Collects will bring the prayers to life in a new way for many. In particular, I am struck by the meditations based on each of the Collects. . . I thank Barbee and Zahl for this gift and commend the book warmly."

"How we long for language that inspires as well as instructs, whose economy is both chaste and capacious, and by the use of which we are made aware of holy and lovely things. This was the imperishable gift of Thomas Cranmer to the English church. Now a generation willfully deprived of this great inheritance may receive it again at the careful hands of Barbee and Zahl."
