Shorter Christian Prayer is an easy-to-use and reasonably priced way for us to pray our morning prayer. This is a must have for anyone looking to pray the psalms in the tradition of the Church!
Recently, I lost the edition he had given me. This was quite a problem, for you see, we pray over the phone. I kind of jury rigged a solution by using the online version of the Liturgy available from Universalis, an online Grail Psalter (because Universalis is radically different lingually), and a few other sites for songs and canticles. It was quite a mess.
I told him I had lost the version he had given me, and I was going to buy a new book because I could not find the old one (someday I will). He was concerned that the new version might not be the same translation as his (which was also the 1988 edition).
Fortunately, this appears to be the same version as the one my friend gave me. It uses the Grail translation of the Psalms, and the 1986 edition of the New American Bible. It even has the same typo in the song "Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence".
I give it a 5/5 because this edition is the one my friend is using, and I will be glad not to have to stumble through the evening and night prayers anymore! A newer or older version would not have done me a lick of good. This is JUST the book I needed.
Thanks, SalvoBooks! ;)
but it is fast becoming one of those books that i reach for each morning and evening at prayer time. thanks it is a great little book to have at hand.
