I have often thought about wanting to pray the Liturgy of the Hours, but was daunted by the large amount of time involved in your day and the large set of expensive books. I then found Shorter Christian Prayer, which included Morning prayer, Evening prayer and Night prayer. Morning and Evening prayer take up about the same amount of time that a Rosary would. Night prayer is shorter. This book requires a bit of a learning experience, as you will need to page back and forth a few times to catch the correct readings for the day. the hymns are in the back, so you need to hunt them up too, but it doesn't take long to learn how to use the book. Most parish priests will be able to tell you how to use the book if you have any trouble, or you can find the information online. As the name inplies, it is not just for Catholics, all Christians can use this, as all the Psalms and Canticles and Readings are straight out of the Bible. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a richer prayer life. it is very usefull.
This is a excellent prayer book for those who want to pray the Hours but do not have time to use the full brevary. The print is clear and easy to read. One big fault!! It needs a calendar of moveable feasts
