As a Lutheran pastor, I have long dreamed of a single book I could carry on hospital and homebound visits - one that would have prayers and Scripture readings for a variety of situations that a pastor encounters. The LSB Pastoral Care Companion aspires to be that book, but doesn't quite hit the mark. The book contains several orders of prayer for visitation of the sick - one with Holy Communion and the other without. It also contains the full funeral rites, from commendation of the dying to the interment. Other sections provide guidance on various spiritual afflictions (marital difficulties, grief, depression, etc.). It also has the lessons for the one- and three-year lectionaries, and the collects. Unfortunately, in my opinion the selection of Scripture texts in many places is weak, so I still carry a small Bible along with this book. The Pastoral Care Companion is a must-have for a Lutheran pastor (and would be useful for any Christian clergyman), but you will need to supplement it with your own reading, and be prepared before your visitations.

The resources in this book are excellent to have on hand at all times. Considering the fact that I may be called on in an emergency or ministering on the spot I am very happy to have this resource on my phone so that I can have it wherever I go. I have been using the paper copy of this resource for years and continue to find excellent, well-written prayers, Bible passages and liturgies for the critical and challenging times in life. There is a clear expression of faith centered on Christ throughout the readings, prayers and liturgies. There are prayers for many of those critical times that I have used word for word or as a guide to prayers that I personalize.

Thanks for bringing this out on Kindle, CPH.

To my fellow soldier of the cross in the other review I would suggest the free Bible App to augment the resources in this book, also many of the resources in the book make specific additional suggestions. Another great resource on Kindle is the Concordia Study Bible, although I only have that as a paper resource.

In terms of content, this is a five star book and I would heartily recommend it. I use it probably more than any other book in my pastoral ministry, in hardcopy. However, the Kindle version has awful formatting and makes it almost unusable. Definitely not worth the purchase.

The book contains basic rites of the church that a pastor would use while away from the church building. There is ample materials for special situations that may occur.
