Growing out of a determination of The Episcopal Church's General Convention in 1934, Forward Movement brought new life to the church after a period of decline. Forward Movement was charged to "reinvigorate the life of the church" and since 1935 has been offering discipleship and evangelism resources to encourage spiritual growth.
"This is a must-have prayer book. It is the perfect companion, easy to carry, travels well, and has such wonderful prayers and wisdom for daily life. I think if you have one prayer book only, this is the one to have. It is beautiful, leather-bound, gold cross accompanies a Book of Common Prayer or Missal well. The preparation prayers of holy eucharist are really good so it is always with me at service too. I glad I bought it and I think it will also make a great gift."
— Rob Nelson
"I love my copy of the St. Augustine's Prayer Book. It was a gift, and I will always treasure it. Clean lines, easy to read print, a beautiful style, and profound devotions. Even the box it came in, marked with a cross, says there is something special inside. And there is."
— The Rev. Lindsay Hardin Freeman
"To this beautiful volume which introduced many to Marian devotion, and which gave expression to a more personal devotion not necessarily found in the BCP, new material e.g. Stations of the Resurrection has been added. The Litany of the Saints is updated to include holy figures from Hebrew Scriptures, the saints of Jesus one might call them, namely Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; Moses, Miriam, and Aaron; Ruth and Naomi. Saints also included are Ignatius of Antioch, Polycarp, Alban. Perpetua and Felicity. Beloved Anglican Saints now includes the pairs: Richard Hooker and Lancelot Andrewes, Nicholas Ferrar and George Herbert, John Keble and Edward Pusey. The updated "Litany of Intercessions in the Night" puts more responsibility on us and is less judgmental. This newly revised edition represents a devotional treasure."
— Dr. Deirdre Good, Academic Dean & Professor of New Testament, General Theological Seminary
"A wonderful, thoughtful revision. Thank you Fr. Cobb & Derek for your work on this instructive new edition that is sure to become the favorite of a new generation."
