The Treasury Of Daily Prayer

Yesterday afternoon my Treasury of Daily Prayer arrived at the shop. Wow!

Now, I’d seen all the press on the blogs, heard all the radio ads from folks I love to hear preach like Cwirla and Weedon, and I’ve seen the endless promotion by Rev. McCain over at Cyberbrethren but I just thought it was all too good to be true.

I’m here to say that all the hype…. was well deserved and it was earned in spades.

I’ve tried for years to put together a resource from a patchwork of devotional books, Scripture and sermons, hymnals, and everything else I could get my hands on to use a devotional resource. The problem with using a patchwork of items is that not everything always seemed to fit together perfectly for ease of use while maintaining the level of theological depth that my missus and I look for.

It’s all here in one book; Psalms, Scripture readings, canticles, hymns, the orders of the day like Matins, Vespers, Compline, and morning and evening prayers, the Small Catechism and readings from the Lutherans Confessions as well as the historic Church fathers. It’s… all… there!

No longer will I be wanting as the Treasury of Daily Prayer exceeded my every expectation. Do yourself a favor folks, give it a try. I told my missus last night that this is the finest thing CPH has ever put out and needs to be on every person’s desk whether they be layperson or clergy; it doesn’t matter. I said that last night and I’m saying it again now, get this book; it is the very best daily devotional resource I’ve ever seen.

Click here and order yours now.

Elephant's Child left the following comment; "And you forgot to mention: this isn't only for Lutherans!" She could not be more right. This is a great book for any Christian and I should have made that clear in the first draft of my post.

I only wish I could've shelled out for the bonded leather cover. Boo-hoo.

But hey, that's my *only* disappointment!

And you forgot to mention: this isn't only for Lutherans!

This is cool! Does it come with the curly hair? I hope so because I want it. HI, my favorite Auntie Laura

I just got mine, and I'm all giddy. Does this mean that we're cool like Weedon, Stuckwisch, & McCain, now, Frank? ;^)

If your standard for "being cool" is McCain, you truly have low standards.

: )

Lutheran coolness just is, no matter who has it.

Eh, you're cool, Irish. In a different kind of way. ;-)

I can't wait to see my leather bound one. It was either that or buy a new dress.

Which really shows what a dork I have turned into.

The leather-bound is niiiice. It's all supple & stuff. I think the rainbow bookmark ribbon was McCain's work, though, pushing for that diverse market niche -- he's an Evangelical Catholic, don'tcha know... ;^) ;^) ;^)
