Overall, this was a great book and one that I would highly recommend!
Each chapter starts with an outline and ends with a review. Along the way are sidebar comments (sort of side bar, anyway): "prayer practice" or "wisdom for the journey," et al. When I first flipped through the book, I cringed. It looked like a 7th grade social studies book (I'm assuming, as I haven't seen a 7th grade social studies book in a long, long time). I fretted that the treatment of prayer might be simplistic or somehow cheapened. My biggest fear was that reading it would not be a pleasure but a chore as the ideas would be put together too choppily.
My fears and my fretting were for nought. I took deep pleasure in reading the book. I ignored the chapter outlines/reviews, glancing, when I so desired, at the side bar information. DeTurris Poust's exhaustive knowledge and her writerly charm drew me forward through the book.
I can even see a good to the Essential Guides format. CATHOLIC PRAYER AND THE MASS would be a fine resource for RCIA, for youth groups, maybe even for middle school religion classes.
*The Mass is our greatest prayer.
