Rarely do I read a book and think how nice it would be to read it with other people. This book just begs to be used as a study guide by every Episcopalian that can get his/her hands on it.
On Advent I in 2012, I began reading/praying the Daily Office in the morning and evening and rarely miss doing so. After all these years, Olson helped me to define this special time in my day as consecrated time for God. I love that! Ideal for Episcopalians--but not exclusively so--this book will help you center your faith in a way that really matters. But be forewarned! If you take on and stick with a daily spiritual discipline, it will change your life.
In addition, this fascinating book explains the WHY and the HOW of each part of the Episcopal liturgy. I am a lifelong Episcopalian, faithful in my attendance at church, and I still learned so much from this book! The sections on the psalms and the collects were eye-opening. The book is written for the layman in easy-to-read, conversational language--so no one should feel intimidated.
If you're looking for an easy way to read/pray the Daily Office, get this for your Kindle from editor Eric Simmons: Daily Office Rite II Morning and Evening Prayers Advent Sunday 2016 to Advent Sunday 2017 ($2.99 for Kindle only).
Marion Hatchett's Commentary on the 1979 BCP tells you where the book comes from. Olsen's book is its logical companion. It tells you how and why to use it.
The audience I most recommend this book to is those who are in charge of confirmation classes, catechizing teenagers, or parenting children. Kids want to know why we do what we do. Teenagers want to know that Christianity is something of depth and interest with real impact on their everyday lives. This book will help parents, teachers, and catechists explain why. (But don't give it to them as homework. Read it with them or to them.)
