Daily living is a mixture of listening, learning and loving, and Frank Topping draws on his experience as Methodist minister, sailor, song-writer and actor to show us the things we take for granted. Lord of Life will appeal to all those who enjoy Frank Topping's meditations, and readers both old and new will appreciate the way in which he helps us to experience God's presence in our lives.

"It seemed as if this had been written specially for me," That was the most frequently repeated phrase when listeners to Radio 2 wrote to the BBC asking for a copy of the script of Frank Topping's morning meditations on Pause for Thought. "What made me decide to broadcast them regularly," says Frank, "was the huge response from listeners – literally thousands."

In the Frank Topping series, the Lutterworth Press has published many of his most popular radio meditations. These collections of thoughts and prayers remain a pleasure to use and also a handy reference for those who want to find their favourite meditation.
