You may find equally interesting a small book called The Other Side Of Heaven at www.lulu.com/stevenrperkins. It contains a collection of Latin prayers with facing-page English renderings.

Absolutely amazing. Great blog post. I am going to buy this book.

The prayers in this book are and do ALL the things Melinda says.

My husband had it for years, then gave me a leatherbound copy a few years ago for my birthday, which I finally read and began feasting on.

For those looking to get a volume: the leather bound version is very nice, but I often go to the paperback which is larger and doesn't chop up the poetic lines visually (like single-column vs. double-column Bibles).

I see that there is a Max McLean audio version collection of the prayers. Ligonier has a Sproul/McLean Valley of Vision Interview CD

I've often read about the book at girltalk.blogs.com. The bloggers are Carolyn (Mrs. C. J.) Mahaney and her daughters.

great video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lH9hZ8BjIwc

My wife is the most generous person I know, but she recently bought me my own copy of VOV so she wouldn't have to continually come to my QT place looking for hers.

One of my favorite lines/warnings says, “. . . for I have a secret motive to eye my name in all I do.”

I'm warmed or "warned off" daily by centuries-old words that speak -- or uncover -- the thoughts of my heart.

If you want to read more prayers from it, Banner of Truth openly publish selected prayers from it at their homepage http://www.banneroftruth.org as well as at http://www.banneroftruth.org/pages/dailydevotion.php

I need to get VOV. :-)

Nice post...

I found your blog through Todd Friel at Wretched Radio. Thanks for all you do!

I would also recommend the Life of David Brainerd, whose theological views were much like Jonathan Edwards', but whose heart just panted after holiness, likeness to God and the conversion of American Indians. Considered one of the best Christian biographies of all time. Hovel audio has an audio version, well-narrated by Nick Cordileone. John Piper's lecture on Brainerd is available at sermonindex.net, but do yourself a favor and read (or listen) to the 'Life' itself. It is awe-inspiring and life-changing.
