Eastertide: Prayers for Lent Through Easter from the Divine Hours
Phyllis Tickle. Galilee Book, $9.95 (272pp) ISBN 978-0-385-51128-5
PW's contributing religion editor Phyllis Tickle adapts her bestselling series The Divine Hours for the spring liturgical calendar with Eastertide: Prayers for Lent Through Easter from The Divine Hours. It's an outstanding and accessible introduction to the ancient Christian practice of fixed-hour prayer, which can seem daunting without a guide so experienced and gracious as Tickle. Beginning with Ash Wednesday and ending with Easter Monday (the day after Easter), this manual of prayers and readings will provide spiritual sustenance during the church's most quiet and joyous season.
