   This book, which comes out of "new monasticism, ...
This book, which comes out of new monasticism in which people live in households under common Christian discipline, but do not take lifetime vows, is a very thoughtfully constructed form for daily communal prayer or in my case daily individual prayer. It has a clear social justice perspective, but highlights Christian thinks from all centuries. The daily Scripture readings are substantial, but not overly long.

   Great Book of Prayer - even on Kindle
I am a newbie to books of prayer, but I love this book, don't read it consistently, but when I get to it during times of my life, it is so helpful in refocusing on what is most important to me. This book of social prayer is refreshing in its orientation around common action. I particularly appreciate the historical sketches in the morning pieces -- very inspirational and thoughtful bits ''. Thanks! '' I would agree with others that the paper version can be a bit cumbersome to navigate compared to a kindle version. The convenience of having it, however, on multiple devices is worth it to me.

   A Well-Rounded Volume to Edify the Individual or Corporate Prayer Life
This resource is accessible to those of non-liturgical traditions, liturgical traditions and even those without tradition. A songbook in the back keeps you from having to carry a hymnal if you don 't want to and the inclusion of chord names over the lead lines provides for a wide range of instrumentation. Use this for your own devotion or with others - either way, you 'll be enriched by the perspectives.

   Will change your life.
This has become my daily devotional. Some have complained of the repetitive nature, but that is what is liturgy. In liturgy, comfort is found. As far as the book itself is concerned, it is extremely easy to use. Many prayer books require that you turn the pages at different times during daily devotion. This one is laid that you don 't have to.

   I was a little disappointed. However, I still like the product.
I was a little disappointed with the product. In the daily liturgy, I expected more diversity. However, I find the book helpful and will use it again soon.

   Up to the challenge of finding gold coins in a haystack?
A very large barn haystack! This book qualifies as a tome. It is a hefty volume, with circa 595 front pages. It is a practical and familiar compilation of a practical material including a great number of songs. But in the midst of this haystack there often appears Roman gold coins, which proves worth purchasing this book in itself.

   A commentary on the ebook formatting
I read this book both as an ebook and as a paperback. It is great to have an electronic version that I don 't mind carrying around with me, but it is hard to read and flip between sections in the ebook. The formatting is better in the paper book.

   Helpful, approachable liturgy
The evening prayer is one per day of the week. The same prayer is the mid-day every day.

   Wonderful
I had been using the daily office, but find this daily practice a much better fit! I would recommend it to anyone, especially those who consider spiritual justice a foundation of their social practice.
