I strongly recommend this book as a resource for all ecumenically-minded Christians who are seeking to retrieve and use earlier traditions of corporate worship. The introductory material on the meaning, aspects and development of liturgy in the church is concise and well-written. It will be particularly valuable for those church communities that do not have a tradition of liturgical worship and yet want to incorporate various elements of liturgy into their prayer and worship practices. As one in the Catholic tradition, I use this book to supplement my daily prayer resources and to enrich my participation in the major celebrations and seaons of the church calendar. The daily and seasonal overviews and reflections are well-suited to appreciating how we can experience God's action in the various "seasons" of our lives. Like liturgy itself, this book helps us to bring a needed patterning and cyclical focus to personal prayer and communal worship - to balance the more spontaneous and personal preferences. My hope is that Common Prayer will become a source book for inter-denominational (or trans-denominational) Christians who are coming together in what is called the "emerging church" or "emergent Christianity". It can serve as an effective blueprint for prayer and worship.

Though this book is written for liturgical use in a group of people, I use it for personal prayer. The layout is easy to follow, and it brings up good points through the written prayers. Shane Claiborne is such a great author and leader, and he was not alone in writing this book! I gave this to someone as a gift and also bought myself one. Both of us really like it.

Great for use at home or in a group. Makes one feel connected with Christians throughout history and around the globe who share a spiritual devotion and pursue practical care for others, justice and freedom. Daily Prayers, scripture readings, and interesting historical sketches about those engaged in freedom and social justice issues. Also includes songs from various traditions.

A great tool for spiritual growth. A non-denominational book of common prayer was long overdue.
