The "Choose Your Own Adventure" prayer book; still some good stuff in here, but enough bad to remove one star. Thankfully, plenty of original Cranmer is preserved, but the absence of Coverdale's Psalter is a substantial loss. With the inclusion of material from other traditions (and many concessions to Eastern Orthodoxy), the theology is all over the map. Compare Rite I, Eucharistic Prayer I with Rite II, Eucharistic Prayer C (often referred to as the "Star Wars" prayer), and you'll get the pict...more

Recommends it for: those curious about other traditions within Christianity
I enjoyed using the Daily Office as a way to read Scripture at three different times through out the day. I'm not doing it now because I enjoy changing how and when I read Scripture but if your looking for a different way to read scripture for a "quiet time" I would suggest using the Daily Office.

“For Sleep O heavenly Father, you give your children sleep for the refreshing of soul and body: Grant me this gift, I pray; keep me in that perfect peace which you have promised to those whose minds are fixed on you; and give me such a sense of your presence, that in the hours of silence I may enjoy the blessed assurance of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.   In the Morning This is another day, O Lord. I know not what it will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be. If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly. If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently. And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly. Make these words more than words, and give me the Spirit of Jesus. Amen.” 3 likes
“The Collect Lord Jesus, stay with us, for evening is at hand and the day is past; be our companion in the way, kindle our hearts, and awaken hope, that we may know you as you are revealed in Scripture and the breaking of bread. Grant this for the sake of your love. Amen.” 0 likes
