"Not Simply a Lutheranized Breviary"
Is how Pr. Kinnaman describes the Treasury of Daily Prayer in his white paper on the selection of the writings for the Treasury. That is, the Treasury is MORE THAN a Lutheran breviary, and yet it is also that - the chief daily offices may be prayed entirely from this single volume. But there's more there than simply the daily office. It's intended to be a complete Lutheran devotional work - families can use it for daily devotions, it introduces our people to great writings from across the centuries of the Church's life, providing helps for preparing to receive the Holy Eucharist or to make confession and receive Absolution, and provides a deepened connection to our observances of the sanctoral calendar. I honestly do recommend the book to every family in our Synod. Looking for a Christmas gift that will actually strengthen a loved one's faith if used? Here it is!
