The Episcopal Media Center of Atlanta (a division of the Alliance for Christian Media) has produced a 3-disc audio book in association with Church Publishing Incorporated of DAY BY DAY: LOVING GOD MORE DEARLY by retired Los Angeles Bishop Frederick H. Borsch. A noted scholar, bishop, and former dean of the chapel at Princeton University, Borsch now serves as chair of Anglican Studies at Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia.
Day By Day, the popular song from Godspell, is based on a prayer from the Middle Ages composed by Richard of Chichester, a saint remembered for his humility, his perseverance in times of hardship, his care for the poor, and the strength and generosity of his faith. He lived during the reign of King Henry III of England.
The prayer: “Day by day, dear Lord, of you three things I pray: to see you more clearly, love you more dearly, follow you more nearly, day by day,” gives shape to the book as Borsch offers an inspirational and meditative reflection on the life of Richard. The audio book was produced in the Atlanta studios of the Episcopal Media Center and includes music from several choirs and solo selections performed by Bishop Borsch’s son, Benjamin Borsch of Tampa, Fla.
Read by the author, the audio book looks at both the historical setting of Richard of Chichester in the 13th Century as well as the challenges facing us today to see, love and follow God. Borsch, who has authored 20 books, beautifully illuminates the challenges to faithfully follow Jesus as he reviews a life that was as complex and dangerous as any church leader in the Middle Ages.
The Episcopal Media Center has produced many audio books including recordings of works by Barbara Brown Taylor. The retail price of the audio book is $20. The book by the same name (101 pages) is available for $15 through Church Publishing Incorporated (ISBN 0-978-0-8192-2341-5). Visit our online store today to purchase Day by Day.
