If you don't mind a mind-boggling number of typo's and you need a large type version of Christian Prayer, this volume is for you. But if you do mind having your prayer disrupted by typo's and do not need large type, use a different version such as Pauline Books and Media Christian Prayer (ISBN 0819814482) instead. If large type is a necessity, Catholic Book Publishing has come out with a new four-volume set (ISBN 0899427103) in large type, but i have not used or seen one yet and at $195 a set, it is fairly pricey.

Many of Catholic Book Publishing's products are tainted by typo's. This is true of the four-volume Liturgy of the Hours, the one-volume Christian Prayer (small type), and other liturgical books, but the large type Christian Prayer is the worst offender I have encountered. An example follows from Psalm 36, p. 739:

"Yor love, Lord, reaches to heaven;

your truth to the skies.

Your injustice is like God's mountain,

your judgments like the deep."

If you look at the small type versions or any Bible, you will not find God being accused of injustice in Ps 36. This is one of many typo's in the large type edition and one that will be encountered every four weeks like clockwork when you pray morning prayer on wednesdays. Since Catholic Book Publishing got this one right in earlier editions, one wonders how this egregious typo crept into this version, and more importantly, why is this typo still there after being in print for 20 years now!?!

I keep my large print Christian Prayer in my car for emergencies (when i forget to bring my breviary with me) and use it very infrequently. I'd hate to throw it away, I'd hate to use it, and I'd hate to give it to someone else and saddle them with this typo-infested version. If this version is the only one you have or can get, by all means use it, otherwise, look elsewhere.

I started going to morning prayer and noticed that everyone had there own book. I was using one of the ones provided by the church. I then decided by the end of that week that I need to get my own because I would like to do The Liturgy of the Hours prayer on my own if I could not go. So far I love the book. The only thing I do not like is that with the shorter type version, the hymns in the back have actual music with them. This volume just has the words. Other than that I am pleased. It seems too that the typos have been fixed.

I have been using the Large Type edition for several years and LOVE it! It is much easier to read for those of us visually handicapped, even if it is just from becomeing over 40! I actually have 2 copies, one for home and one I keep in my car. With the copy in my car I can do morning prayer at work, church, or where ever I am weekday mornings. And the second copy at home I use mainly for Evening Prayer.
My wife recently bought the 4-volume set thinking that it would be easier to follow than this 1-volume edition. However, she found she was still having to go back and forth (like for Sunday Prayers at the end of Evening I & Evening II sections). So we are returning it and getting her her own copy of this Large Type version.
There are a few typos but I don't find them nearly as irksome as another reviewer.
This book has been a great cornerstone in my faith's growth and spiritual journey. And now my wife is taking it on. How awesome!

My husband & I pray morning & evening prayer together. He uses the four volume Litergy of the Hours. I prefer Christian Prayer. It's all in one book. I especially like the large print.

The only reason I don't give this book 5 stars is because it doesn't include the Office of Readings, except for the Office of the Dead. However, for someone who is interested in getting started with the Liturgy of the Hours, and get into the discipline of Lauds, Vespers and Compline, this is an excellent start. The large type makes it especially easy to read, and the heft of the book is wonderful.

One of our community members cannot see well at all, even with glasses. This large print version of Christian Prayer is perfect. The pagination is the same as smaller print versions and everyone can participate in the Morning Office without the disruption of finding the same thing on differently numbered pages.

I thought this book was out of print and no longer available and was delighted when I found it. It is for a 96-year-old nun who has worn out her copy of this book and asked me to find a new one for her. She has seeing and hearing problems and spends at least an hour in chapel each day, with her magnifying glass, reading her Christian Prayer book. When I ordered it and received the message that it was on backorder I was afraid it would be several weeks or months before you would have one in stock. But it was only a few days and I had the book within ten days after I ordered it. Thanks for the good service.
