Common Prayer Pocket Edition : A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals

With an ear to the particulars of various liturgical prayer traditions, and using an advisory team of liturgy experts, the authors have created a tapestry of prayer that celebrates the best of each tradition. This convenient and portable book also includes tools for prayer scattered throughout to aid those unfamiliar with liturgy and deepen the prayer life of those already familiar with liturgical prayer.

It includes a table of days and readings for the morning prayers as well as an annotated list of saints and days to remember. Churches and individuals who desire a deeper prayer life-and those familiar with Shane Claiborne and New Monasticism-will enjoy the tools offered in this book as a fresh take on liturgy.

I just received this book last night and I was a little disappointed. Not in the book, but because I though I was buying the full version when this is the 'pocket edition', which is a reduced whittled down version. (Still good and useful but not what I though I was getting) Admittedly, if I had read the full description on this listing I would have seen that this is the pocket edition. However, I feel that it should be clearly stated in the title that this is a 'pocket edition', not merely just a paper-back version of the full edition.show moreby Tiffany Jenkins
