In this book, written just before his death, Calvin Miller takes a critical and prophetic look at the movement he loved, believing we can only shape the future if we understand the present. American evangelicalism, he warns, has largely adapted to the culture and as a result, is waning in its vitality and influence. Rather than counting on some grand revival, Miller writes that revitalizing the heart of evangelical Christianity will instead happen one person at a time.

Sunrise and sunset. Morning and evening. Waking and resting. Your days are busy and unknown: each contains unexpected moments of joy and pain, struggle and hope. The time between your rising and sleeping is new each day. The same was true for the Celts, though their lives looked different from yours. And in the midst of the uncertainty of days, they chose to meditate on truth, to draw near to the One who holds the sun and moon in his hands. Calvin Miller invites you to do the same in Celtic Devotions. This thirty-day guide provides morning and evening readings and prayers to help you establish a Word-centered rhythm in your days. Centered on Psalm 119, an important psalm in Celtic praise, and including quotations from classic Celtic works, this devotional will guide your thoughts from morning to evening, helping you rest in God's truth when you're awake and when you're sleeping.

An absolute delight is Celtic Daily Devotions compiled by Calvin Miller. This collection of Celtic Christian poetry is laid out for a 30 day period, and broken into brief morning and evening readings. A few years ago we heard Dr. Miller describe his discovery of the Celtic expression of Christianity, and purchased the two books that grew out of that experience, and they became a very meaningful part of my life. Dr Miller's own poetry and observations rival any expression of contemporary poetry.

This past Christmas as I was reflecting on the legacy that I am leaving my three generations of descendants, I realized that I wanted to ensure that they had the opportunity to share in my friendship with Calvin Miller, and especially this very special treasure that has been my constant companion since May of 2008, so purchased 11 copies..
Through numerous readings it has consistently challenged,, stimulated, and awed me, with each encounter being fresh manna. Although the portions are small they are very rich

I try to read this devotion on a daily basis, and presently endevouring to memorize some of the poems that especially impact me.

I love this devotional. It is only 30 days long but it has something for the morning and evening. The topics may seem a little bland at first; a road, a home, visiting others, etc. But the beauty of this devotional is that Christ can be found everywhere. I think they are similar to the parables of Jesus in that they take the every materials of life and use them as a platform to meditate on the kingdom of God.

This includes parts of some ancient prayers that go right to the heart of Celtic Christianity. Truly inspiring. I left mine outside and it got very wet, but I will buy another copy even after having finished it.
It can offer years of inspiration.

This is a beautifully written, poetic book that one can use morning and evening with readings from Psalm 119 plus ancient Celtic prayers and spiritual insights added by the gifted author. I've used this small book as gifts on several occasions and all of the recipients have enjoyed it greatly.

This book was purchased as a follow up for The Path of Celtic Prayer: An Ancient Way to Everyday Joy by Calvin Miller.

As an experiment, this has been "mind bending" in that it has introduced elements I would never have considered in prayer. Unfortunately, for me some of it come across as non-Christian. [EDIT: for instance the prayers are directed towards the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit... as opposed to Jesus' teaching that prayers are directed to the Father. There is also an invitation for God to join us in drinking "lakes of beer."]

Also, the prayers often have little to do with the particular topic introduced for the day. The book promises to pray through Psalm 119 [EDIT: It does not even come close]. The verses seem disconnected [EDIT: because they are random] from the topic and the prayers.

Be aware that the Celts lived in mortal fear, seemingly of everything (such as sleep). Then again, it was a different world when lives were short and life was violent. This is reflected in the book. [EDIT: It is an interesting peek into one Protestants opinion/view on an ancient Catholic society. The key to understand this is that some of the material is ancient and some is Miller's invention.]

If you know what you believe and are interested in something off (way off for the American Protestent) the "beaten path," you may like this book. However, for the genuine seeker, there is little satisfying prayer here.
