    Like myself, many Latin rite Catholics are keen to pray with some form of a Byzantine Divine Office and discouraged by either by the daunting number of books, and the complexity of a liturgical system of ritual things, understood only by an experienced insider. Well — this book gets me started praying in a Byzantine spirit. It is more akin to the Catholic shorter Christian Prayer, with hymns and propers selected to provide sufficient variety. More importantly it seems to me that the services are shortened according to sound, researched liturgical principles (though I have only read a little of Fr Robert Taft). Brevity and ease are important for a prayer discipline. The Ukrainian and Melkite Horologions, while more complete, is neither, though one who lives and breathes the logic of a Typicon will appreciated them more. It is a pity that New Skete’s Book of Prayers is no longer in print, so this book fills in an important gap, and is really reasonably priced and sized. To supplement this “weekly” cycle of prayer with material from the richer liturgical year, one might subscribe to the monthly “Theosis” magazine. But I like holding on to books, and ordered New Skete’s Troparion and Kontakion instead. (Jack keeps sending me Theosis by the month — he’s too generous.)

    This book was given to me in 2011 as a gift and it has changed my life. There are so many prayers in this book for many different occasions. It allows me to organize my daily prayers and I use it multiple times a day.
