Readers will recognize the inseparability of the tables of their homes and the Eucharistic Table, relating daily life with Eucharistic life. Dr. Daniel connects the language of the Book of Common Prayer with the everyday realities of ordinary life, compelling the worshiper to discern how daily practices correspond with or fight against her participation in the Eucharistic economy.

What People are Saying About This
"For those hungry and thirsty for a moment's peace or a lifetime of the same, Inhabited by Grace is a must read. Daniel does not take lightly the deep truth that there is no division between the body and the soul; the abundant life Jesus offered is found in the practice of authentic spiritual discipline and piety. Three cheersor perhaps whispersfor this great work."
The Rev. Dr. Russell J. Levenson, Jr., St. Martin's Episcopal Church, Houston, Texas
"This is a pearl of a booksteeped in the wisdom of the ancient church, of attentiveness to the Bible, for contemporary pastoral and liturgical practice. As William Daniel gazes upon God he trains us to do the same. And the God who gazes back in Christ changes us. He is full of demanding love and insistent mercy. As a reader I couldn't get enough."
The Rev. Dr. Jason Byassee, Vancouver School of Theology
"Inhabited by Grace is a book that needs to be in the hands of every Christian who seeks to deepen their life of prayer and devotion to
Christ. William Daniel walks us through all the reasons why prayer matters, making us fall in love with Christ again and again."
The Rev. Marcus George Halley, Saint Paul's Church on Lake of the Isles, Minnesota
"The only thing that really has lasting transformative power is an encounter with God's grace. And this book is filled cover to cover with just thattwo hundred proof, unadulterated, amazing Grace! So, 'stop lookin' for love in all the wrong places,' and devour this book today.
Not too much theory, and perfectly practical, this is a must-read for anyone who wants to make Sunday rituals have real meaning on Monday morning."
The Rev. Charleston David Wilson, Church of the Redeemer, Sarasota, Florida
"A beautiful series of meditations on the spiritual life."
The Rev. Dr. Juan Oliver, Custodian of the Book of Common Prayer
