Many daily devotional books seem to have the goal of offering the reader a small slice of comfort to help him through the day. This one is different. Using Bible readings from the daily lectionary of the Book of Common Prayer, Fr. Charles Erlandson sets forth a daily sermon accompanied by prayers and reflections. The zeal, the intensity of faith, and the intelligence of these messages are contagious. Praying these prayers and reflecting deeply on God’s Word in this way will give you more than a pious gush. They will equip you to go into the world as a soldier of Christ’s Church Militant, fighting under the banner of the cross; and by God’s grace flattening the gates of Hell, and discipling the nations.
