"The Treasury of Daily Prayer" is a devotional book intended primarily for Lutherans, but useful for any Christian.

The main feature of the "Treasury" is it's day-to-day devotional readings. Each day's devotion features a reading from the book of Psalms, an Old Testament Reading, a New Testament Reading, an excerpt from the writings of a prominent historical theologian (e.g. Martin Luther, John Chrysostom, Anselm of Canterbury), and a prayer. Each day's reading is about 40 verses and they loosely work their way through a book of the Bible (or large sections from longer books). They don't necessarily go Genesis then Exodus, etc., but rather take a book of the Bible that is historically associated with the season of the Church year (e.g. sections from Revelation were read during the last days of the Church Year; in Advent, Isaiah is read). In all, about 1/3 of the Old Testament and nearly all of the New Testament is read during the course of the year.

In addition to the daily readings, other the "Treasury" contains other features that will certainly foster the user's spiritual growth. Included within these are orders of worship for private and family devotions which are based on the historic church's pattern of daily prayer (e.g. Matins, Morning Prayer, and a morning liturgy; Evening Prayer, Compline, and an evening liturgy), seasonal propers, the complete book of Psalms (pointed for chanting), sample prayers for various concerns, and Martin Luther's Small Catechism.

After giving it a thorough examination and using it as part of my private daily devotions for over a month, I highly recommend the "Treasury of Daily Prayer." The readings connect the reader with the rhythm and flow of the church year while connecting him with the historic church.

One of the high points of the book is the included one-year lectionary cycle. This includes a portion of a Psalm, an Old- and New-Testament reading (though not an epistle + gospel), a reading from the church fathers, a verse from a hymn, a suggested Book of Concord reading (it is a very Lutheran book), and a concise, meaningful prayer of the day. This makes for a great daily devotional.

The book also contains the complete Psalms, marked for singing in plainsong, some well-written daily and topical prayers, etc. It's scripture front to back. If you prefer to take your Christianity from scripture rather than from your best, purpose driven life now, this is the book to work from, a marvel from Concordia Publishing House.

This review is for the Kindle version of the book. I gave it 3 stars because the content is excellent and I'll likely get the print version. However, the Kindle version lacks useful navigation. The book references page numbers to use for various parts of the devotional. Those page numbers don't work for the Kindle version. Instead, the publisher should add hyperlinks throughout the book to make it easier to navigate. I tried bookmarks, but even those quickly became unwieldy.

Until a more robust navigation system is programmed into this title, I recommend avoiding the Kindle version and sticking with print. The directions for the print version advise heavy use of ribbon place markers--the analog version of hyperlinks, this emphasizes the need for hyperlinks in the e-version!)

I have been in love with prayer books, especially the classic 1662 Book of Common Prayer, for a number of years now. But I have always had two major complaints:

First, I wanted a prayer book that also included daily Bible readings in the text, so that I would not have to go and look up passages in a separate Bible. The only prayer books of that sort that I was able to find were usually Catholic (so they included prayers to saints and other things I wasn't interested in), the Bible readings were short, and usually from the NRSV (not my favorite translation).

Second, I wanted more prayers, perhaps even a different prayer for every day of the year (though I assumed that was too much to ask), rather than only a prayer for Sunday that is repeated through the week (as with the BCP), or a 1 to 4 week cycle of prayers that are repeated once every week or month.

This book has it ALL. For every single day of the year there is a unique prayer, as well as readings from the OT, Psalms, and NT (in the ESV, a translation I like very much). And as if that were not enough, there is also a short meditation from a Father of the Church, AND a verse from some classic hymn. You can choose to skip one or more of these offerings for a shorter prayer time, or read through them all (it still only takes about 15 minutes, depending on how fast you want to read) for a full and satisfying experience.

This compact edition is especially nice, with an attractive binding that looks and feels old (without the added price tag of genuine leather), and is the perfect size to carry with you and hold comfortably in one hand.

Highly recommended for any Christian in the Protestant tradition (Lutheran/Anglican/Presbyterian) who is looking for a fuller (and more traditional) daily prayer experience.
