About the Book

EDITOR'S PREFACE

 

Why read ancient prayers?  Well, beyond the comfort of making the acquaintance of God's faithful whom we will someday meet in our glory everlasting, beyond the widening up of our own vocabulary so that phrases like "someday meet in our glory everlasting" go tripping off our tongue, it is a way to confound the devil.  

 

C. S. Lewis put these words in the mouth of his fictional devil in The Screwtape Letters:

 

...and since we cannot deceive the whole human race all the time, it is most important thus to cut every generation off from all others; for where learning makes a free commerce between the ages there is always the danger that the characteristic errors of one may be corrected by the characteristic truths of another. 

 

 

All these prayers, hymns and meditations were taken from old books available online for free.  Check the sources at the end of this book for links to download the books from which these prayers were taken. 

 

While you are there, look for other old books -- confounding the devil is great fun.

 About the author:  the author is not quite as old nor quite as cranky as the book's narrator, but she's at least as good a researcher, and she does have John Donne's sermons and all the episodes of Gilligan's Island
