This work brings together for each day of the year three prayer practices for contemplative living: first, a brief "active prayer"; second, spiritual reading; and, third, Lectio Divina. The brief introductory prayer sentences are from various sources - the Bible and traditional prayers of the church or of well-known spiritual writers. The spiritual readings come from eleven of Father Keatings books and one audiotape, with a month's worth of readings derived from each work. Each day's entry concludes with a brief selection from the Bible, or Lectio Divina.

2003- this book has been with me in hardback since that time. This is the most well-used of all my Keating books! Each month's daily reading has a bible verse or active prayer sentence, with commentary offered from one of Father Thomas's books or talks -a true blessing. The book spine has given out in many of the month sections, and the pages are now clipped together - frankly that was better for traveling, since I could take just the dates I was out of town for my daily meditations. I had seriously considered replacing the book, but did not want the paperback edition. Now that this book is available on Kindle, I have the readings at my fingertips, since I also now use a meditation timer app- everything in one location. If you are new to Centering Prayer, guidelines and support resources are available in the back of the book.

I spent a lot of time this year looking for a daily devotional that surpassed, or at least equaled this, for substance, inspiration, and ability to really assist a daily contemplative discipline. I found nothing better than this. I love it. I wish there were more volumes. It's truly a wonderful companion to contemplative Christian experience.

There is nothing not to like about this book. Father Keating has done an excellent job of “centering” one’s start of the day!

A way of cultivating friendship with God. After which is the invitation. I recommend that the book be revisited.
Whitebeard
I like it because it gives short but concise readings that take only a little time so you have to meditate. The books which he takes the readings are very reliable spiritual books, including the Bible of course.

This is a great book. I also bought this for friends.

I have found The Daily Reader for Contemplative Living: Excerpts from the Works of Thomas Keating to be simply the best Christian resource for daily spiritual practice in 50 years of spiritual discipline. Each reading begins with a short phrase related to the topic that can be used as an active prayer for that day. The quote from one of Fr. Thomas Keating's mother-lode works (one book or talk a month) is followed by a relevant brief passage from the Bible (Old or New Covenant). A reading from The Daily Reader for Contemplative Living has served (and continues) as part the vestibule to my daily heart prayer for more than three years. Like all inspired writing, each reading reveals new light from the radiant heart of a still-speaking God.
I use this for an evening contemplation/prayer time. It gives me a starting point. Father Keating never fails to bring out points that somehow almost always relate to me. He just knows humanity too well. I recommend this to everyone!
