CPH offers modern translation of Johann Gerhard's prayers

New from Concordia Publishing House is Meditations on Divine Mercy, a contemporary translation of Johann Gerhard’s Daily Exercise of Piety, a collection of more than 40 prayers written in the early 1600s to comfort people as they faced the problems and misfortunes of life.

Translated by Rev. Matthew Harrison, executive director of LCMS World Relief and Human Care, Meditations on Divine Mercy encourages readers to explore sin, God’s gifts to His people, and the needs of others and themselves.

“When I first read these devotions, I was stunned at how contemporary they are, and what clear law and Gospel they contain,” said Harrison.  “The prayers for family, enemies, those hurting, for patience, hope, chastity are as fresh today as when they were written.”

To order Meditations on Divine Mercy ($12.99, item no. 12-4183), contact CPH at (800) 325-3040 or visit the CPH Web site at www.cph.org.  (Price does not include a charge for shipping and handling.)
