Brian Grogan SJ explains the inspiration behind the widely popular on-line prayer resource and how it has also turned into a publishing success.
Sacred Space: The Prayer Book 2013 is the ninth edition of the book based on the hugely inspirational website www.sacredspace.ie initiated by the Irish Jesuits in 1999. The book, as the website, guides the reader simply and gently through a series of reflection stages, gradually leading into conversation and prayer.
With scripture readings for each day of the calendar year the busy Christian has an opportunity for quiet personal prayer anywhere, any time. As the book and the site continue to grow in popularity, thousands of people are using both to pray.
Since 2005 the book alone has sold over 300,000 copies to Christians of all denominations.
