By converting Wesley's sermons into prayers, Dr. Chilcote has faithfully rendered both the substance and the intent of John Wesley's proclamation – a means of divine encounter for nothing less than the regeneration of the lost, the reformation of society, ant the renewal of the church. – Steve Harper (Vice President, Asbury Theological Seminary Orlando, Florida)
… lays bare the conviction so central to John Wesley: that the life of prayer and devotion is not for ourselves alone but engages us with the world. – Jan L. Richardson (Author, Sacred Journeys: A woman's book of daily prayer)
