"Some of you may know that I have been publishing a prayer-poem a week on the blog ‘Pray the Story’. These prayers respond to one of the lectionary readings for the following Sunday.
As I have completed a full cycle through the Revised Common Lectionary, I have compiled them all into a book, and added some extra poems that were composed as exclusives for patrons, liturgy for the eucharist, some hymns, and incidental prayers. I have also included two indexes - forms and themes, and Bible references, which are tools I have found helpful in such books."
